One cinema I have not seen mentioned in recent correspondence was a tiny little one in North Street, opposite the Essoldo. I think over the years it showed many different kinds of films, and I only visited it on a couple of occasions, but remember the fact that it was so tiny.
My first visit there was in my teens (way back). Mum had made me set of Fairisle knitted gloves and beret, and my outing to the cinema was the first time of wearing them. Unfortunately, I managed to lose the gloves on that outing and can remember how upset Mum was. I had to make a return visit from Whitehawk into town to try and retrieve them, but never did find them. There was a lot of work in the Fairisle knitting and my Mum did beautiful work with it. She used to help out with the family income by knitting items for shops at one time, all done by hand in those days.
