    The Stamford Hill Cinema was the A B C Super. I was a monitor there and a safety Marshal at the Regent for Sat Morning Pics. Alternated the two. 1952 – 1955. Super then became 1st uk bowling alley.

    I miss the Standard Cinema, on Goldsmiths Row E2. It was a magnificent cinema in its day.
    It became a bingo venue for a number of years and finally became a Snooker Hall.

    By the millennium it was a dump and way beyond any type of restoration. Here is a link, which give a greater insight to its Heyday.

    Sorry unable to place the link, but if you type “Standard Super Cinema” into the Google search, it will appear.
