The film advertised is 'Poppy' with W.C.Fields. It was made in 1936.

In the last years of my mum being able to play bingo there in early 2000 they tried to bring the cinema back. Looking on Google it is now a venue called Rialto Reborn!
Annewiggy, thank you for the info. I knew it was an old place but 1928, never thought during 'our time' and being our usual dancing haunt that it was that old. Never thought about it in the late 50's and early 60's, but that's how we take these things for granted - just too busy enjoying ourselves. It's had a few name changes since then. Wave

Dreamtime. I agree, I don’t think I ever thought about the history of buildings I went in or how long they had been there. I don’t even think that a fact that there had been a war a few years before I was born ever registered or why we were having a new shopping centre in the city. I must admit I have never been in the Rialto. It was the place mum and dad went to play bingo so I imagine I then would not have been seen dead in there, I did not know it had been a theatre or held dances. When I think about it I have not been into many of the pubs etc. near to home like the Radford, Holyhead, Grapes, etc. I did have my 21st and wedding reception at the Pilot. I mostly went to town pubs and venues. Oh such a long time ago 👵🏻👵🏻
