Club started with a fantastic electric organ with colourful flashing lights emerging from the floor of the stage. This played lots of sing alongs. Kids in the packed cinema would then attack the organist with pea-shooters. Organist protected himself with by donning his ARP tin hat but would surrender when the ammunition bust the organ's innards. Flash Gordon with Ming theTerrible would soon quieten us kids with terror.
A similar club was run by Dirty Blacks (Palace). Serial was Devil's Horse.Seats were just wooden forms which we kids would straddle and hump them along as we rode to the rescue of the lady in distress. Checkies going mad trying to keep control ( no chance) The war with Hitler could wait until we got home.
Two cinemas missed on your list were The Scala which was just a few yards from the Odeon and Loppy Lloyds near the bottom of the high street.
