Remembering Shoreham’s old theatres and cinemas

editorial image

Once popular theatres and cinemas that have been demolished or converted will be recalled at an illustrated talk organised by the Shoreham Society.

The event is at St Peter’s Church hall in Shoreham on Friday, November 20, starting at 7.30pm, and is open to all.

Entry is £2 for Shoreham Society members and £3 for others.

Historian Chris Horlock will describe the heydays of lost theatres and cinemas in the Brighton area, with special reference to Middle Street and the mothballed Hippodrome.

Talks organised by the society cover a wide variety of subjects and are a popular part of the group’s work, which also includes monitoring local planning issues, encouraging good design in the built environment and seeking improvements to local infrastructure and amenities.

Most of the society’s open talks are held at St Peter’s hall.

Tea and coffee is available and the bar is usually open.
