Hi Mike, Thanks for the correction, not having seen the film myself I wasn't sure. The Capitol was also one of our regular list, I remember seeing Frank Sinatra in "Higher And Higher" there. The "Rock" of course where I saw Errol Flynn in Robin Hood I think that must have been just before the war. (Happy Days)Hi Reg.. The Film in Question was not "Dogs of War" It was call "The Sea Wolves" Produced By Euan Lloyd Who was trained in Cinema Management at the ABC Savoy Cinema.. Walsall...
Surely some mistake. As far as I know, Gooch Street has always been on the opposite side of the Belgrave Road to Balsall Heath Road so there was never a junction of the two. Since Belgrave Road is usually the boundary with Highgate I would have to say that the Triangle was Highgate rather than Balsall Heath. If you are going that deep into Highgate, you have to include The Alhambra on Moseley Road just by Highgate Rd.
These five Balsall Heath Cinemas have all been mentioned before on this thread, but the photos went missing when the site was hacked. Perhaps a moderator might be able to slot them back in their original posts because I doubt that after all this time the original poster is going to. In fact if the OP hasn't got a copy ofthe photo to reinstate he is quite at liberty to use one of these and I will then delete it. These five cinemas are, The Balsall Heath Cinema later renamed the Luxor it was near the junction of Gooch St on Balsall Heath Rd. TheTriangle Cinema at the junction of Gooch St and Conybere St. The Imperial Cinema at the junction of Clifton Rd and Moseley Rd. The Moseley Cinema near to the junction of Belgrave Rd and finally the only one that still remains the Olympia even if it is an Asian Supermarket now.
