The Granada Cinema

A Memory of Bedford

I worked at the Granada cinema from the age of 15 and it was the best time I had, the building was unbelievable with many secret or forgotten doorways... Does anyone have any photos before it was demolished? I can't understand why it was allowed to happen. I visit Bedford occasionally and I still can't believe the building has gone, such a shame. I have the best memories of working there. The new complex just doesn't compare, it's awful. I remember working with Les and Andy the projectionists, and Charlie Fields and Noreen Chand who were the managers... If anyone knows where to get in touch with them or has any photos of the cinema I would be grateful..
