The Royalty cinema, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne

Exteriors: day and dusk and a mystery...

Shots of the Royalty and High Street. These were recorded on 19th January 1982 after the cinema had closed. Suddenly as I took various shots, the neon sign lit up, as you will see. I thought perhaps John, the projectionist, had been in the building, had seen me and turned on the lights. But when I asked him later he said he wasn't in there.
