Cinema memories

Cinema can evoke powerful memories, freeze framing moments in our lives and dropping us back into a time, a place or social situation. These memories can provide a rich source of historical and cultural information. They are fun to read too!

Granada programme


We are collecting your cinema memories.  If you have any memories of going to the ‘pictures’ in Crystal Palace then please do LEAVE A REPLY and we will share them on this page over the coming months.


In the meantime, do you remember this? It includes some lovely memories from local resident, Joan Tindall, who worked as an usherette at the Granada cinema in the 1950’s. She can remember when there were two cinemas on Church Road.
