Southwark most dangerous borough
Apr 24 2007
SOUTHWARK has replaced Lambeth as South London's most dangerous borough to live in...
There's a little gap onto Southwark from our ward...........The map made me realise our house is bounded on three side by borders to Lewisham!!!!!
Lewisham cinema closed down 20 or so years ago. There have been various rumours over the years about the council trying and failing to entice cinema chains back, but there just wasnt the space- but now there is Yay!
Still we've got a British Tenpin Bowling Association approved Bowling Centre
Partner is Lewisham born'n'bred, & is always on about Chiesman's when we go to Lewisham! Apparently they had a walkway to the shop built when the one-way was built.Got my ears pierced in Chiesman's,

My Lewisham question: what is, or was, the ancient-looking wall in the middle of the one-way?
It is to Lewisham what the Submarine is to the Brixton/Camberwell border!
I vaguely remember Lewisham Cinema being near St Stephen’s Church so this photo looks like the right location. Those buildings either side of the cinema are still there!I grew up round there. Got my ears pierced in Chiesman's, watched the original Rocky at that cinema, hung out at the bowling alley...
Can't believe the cinema closed down 20 years ago. I'm getting old.
Good pics!Ive just read that the old Catford Cinema has been renovated by the Universal Church for the Kingdom of God as a 'place of worship, conference centre and library.' Arent they the shower of shits invoolved in the Victoria Climbie abuse?
Lewisham is the only London borough with no cinema.
From the vid, it looks like the Bank at issue was the Barclays on the corner of High St and Lewis Grove?concert review said:The video has clips of the gig, plus Baker and Johnny running up Lewisham High Street (!!), and
outside the Odeon and inside at the ticket office.
I wonder what happened to all those lovely fittings...crushed with the wrecking ball I guessIm not sure of the exact dates of it closing/ being knocked down- everything suggests early 1980s.
I vaguely remember seeing cartoons there as a toddler-some of my earliest memories- huge colour screen- that would be '83/84? maybe.
