    From my understanding these homes are temporary until proper cunt-hutches gets built on the site down the not too distant line...

    Posting from/reading sites on my phone so a little cumbersome to read brockley central, but I can't see his source for the so-called anti-gentrifiers scorning social housing.

    Reading brockley central quite often makes me want to move back up north, or abroad. Then I come back to real life and remember brockley is actually really nice and not really filled with people who are dying to turn it into east Dulwich.

    Brockley is really nice. I went through it again the other day and was reflecting on this.

    if my searching is correct, Dogsauce would appear to have been the first to use the term on urban - in November 2014 (post here)

    OMFG...where is my life going?..over a year! :D ;)

    It made me wince when I first read it. I save it for special occasions now.

    The New Cross and Deptford Free Film Festival has published this year's programme - full details here.

    We've also published a Facebook event for each screening, full list is here. Please think kindly on us and spread the word, invite people and join yourselves! :D Would be really good to meet some urbanites around the festival if anyone can make it :)

    Quick special plug for my screening of Pride on Wed 27 April - there's a discussion afterwards with one of the protagonists from the film, alongside (hopefully!) someone from TUC and the BMA :cool:

    I'd really like to see that but I've got to be at New Cross Learning to help with their screening.

    Might see if I can sneak out for a bit... :hmm:

    Just shown this to my OH who remembers going to see Mary Poppins, and Emerson Lake and Palmer, there!

    It was on the bit of road just before where the ramp up to the shopping centre now is.

    sadly never went there - it closed when i was fairly little, and we didn't really do cinema-going

    :(

    if you want some history (and map) then something here including links to more pictures on Flickr.

    and the video to the Clash's Bankrobber was mainly filmed at and around the Lewisham Odeon. (I took a set of photos of the locations over xmas last year - really must get them online...

    Saw David Essex here when I was 11 ...did the whole thing - screaming, crying ,waving scarves, pretending to faint hoping to be taken back stage. None of which worked ,so afterwards we invaded the wimpy that was a couple of doors away and probably pissed everyone off by singing "I'm gonna make you a star" ad nauseum.

    Went to see loads of films there as a kid. Bugsy Malone stands out in my memory for some reason as well the odd Saturday morning kids matinees.

    Some mates of mine squatted an adjacent row of roof flats around 89-90 (the entrance was above the Roebuck pub just round the corner). The cinema was derelict by then but we knew some secret entrances. The place had been totally trashed was full pigeon shit but still plenty of lead and copper inside :)
    (If it was envious stories of seeing the clash there you was after, sorry to disappoint :D I was only 9 at the time)

    Didn't there's used to be a little club (Paradise Garage?) in that doorway on the left hand side of the entrance?

    Lots of films there too in the 70s Slades ' Flame', Jaws, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Incredible Journey.
    As you walked up inside the staircase towards the door into the Auditorium ,there were velvet sofas in the hallway.. we used to always be coming out mid film just to sit on the luxury that was a velvet sofa.

    :facepalm:

    it had a brief incarnation as a gay pub around 1991/2 when i was briefly living in S London

    (at that time, breweries tended to try giving run down pubs a go as a gay pub rather than flog them off for redevelopment)

    'grotty' does not quite do it justice...

    yes (remember seeing the sign, never went there) - it was in what was originally the restaurant. Think it stayed open after the cinema closed until the mid 80s.

    presume it didn't still look like this
