Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Just steps now, Dennistoun’s Parade Cinema

I’ve passed the steps shown below quite a few times recently (turning off Alexandra Parade into Meadowpark Street), and was sure they’d led to a substantial building, one which had vanished not all that long ago (in historic terms at least).

Reasonably sure it was a cinema for at least part of its life, and then the inevitable bingo hall, I found that was the case (Parade), and that it even been turned back into a cinema (New Parade) from 1969 to 1986 after being a bingo hall, then derelict for a while, then a pub, then demolished.

As usual, more details can be found at the Scottish Cinema web site:

Parade / New Parade, 200 Meadowpark Street, Dennistoun

It’s almost amazing to see those metal handrails are still there years later!
