Anyone old enough to remember the Canada Pictures as it was years ago?

Remember going to this theatre when only a small boy, probably with a school outing to watch a pantomime. I remember it being a small place but enjoying the visit. Good photo Dennis, you captured this beautiful old building very well, its almost 130 years old now.

A lovely old Victorian building that seems safe from demolition! I do remember the smelly green urinal on the the left hand side though which thankfully was demolished.
