  • I cannot add this to the Cinema site as I have no picture.
    To the Editor;
    I recall being taken to a cinema on Brighton sea front somewhere near the West Pier.
    If I recall correctly, it was called “The Palladium” and it seemed to me as a young child that it was old – maybe an old theatre. The film I saw with my father was a Russian classic called “The Battleship Potempkin”. Ca you edit this into “Cinemas” after checking it out and letting me know?

  • Hello John
    You are right about the cinema – The Palladium was on the seafront.
    If you look on the Regency Society you will see a photo

  • I may (I stress may) be able to donate below mentioned panoramic school photos. Brighton & Hove Archives don’t want my offer of a donation of old ‘Hove County School for Boys’ panoramic school photos dated 1946 and 1948 as they say they have copies already. There MUST be another local Hove archive that would have them, surely? Any suggestions please?

  • Can there ever be a more gorgeous house as there was on 65 Upper Gloucester Road. I moved there in 1952 on my tenth birthday with my Mum, Dad and sister. My Dad was working in Berkeley Square in Mayfair and travelled each day up to London. We moved from our house in Palmers Green down to Brighton as my Dad loved Brighton. All too soon I was drawn into the magic of Brighton with the Promettes and the magic of the Laines and the wonderful Brighton Library and Museum where I spent a lot of my time. The lovely Pem and Pop Bell who owned the house in Upper Gloucester Road which backed onto the old Brighton Film Studios made us so welcome and I attended the local St Mary Magdalene School in Upper North Street. Brighton then was a magical place and we were there for three years in that house which was demolished and them rebuilt and looks absolutely fabulous on the corner of St Nicholas Road. How I would love to live there! I eventually ended up on Hove seafront but my heart yearns for that house in Upper Gloucester Road with so many happy memories! Jillian.
