The Trocadero was a clean cinema, used to like going there . My sister lived on Netherhall estate for about 10 years before emigrating to Australia in the early 60s . I lived in Haynes Road ( near Coleman Road) moved to Sandbanks 1963 was lovely there then so unspoilt. The millionaires have completely ruined it. Now live in lovely Somerset.

You are right I believe Shirley.  Siler Street was where all the big Pantomimes were staged and the Gods were blooming high.  Floral Hall and the Palace were next door to each other in Belgrave gate.  The Floral Hall was a cinema and used by dirty old men in raincoats and the Palace was live entertainment.  Tele killed the Palace off.  8)

TV did not help the palace theatre but i think that its demise had more to do with crap shows like  the carroll levis discoveries, this man made spewy green and opportunity knocks look cool.
