The Original Phoenix Cinema

I dont believe it! Thats the phrase that came to mind the other day when I realised that 10 years have passed since Dougie Shearers beloved Phoenix Cinema showed its final film The Land Girls on 28th November 1998.

This front view of the cinema was taken by Phoenix Photos and shows the original 'Phoenix' sign.

The Phoenix disappeared completely at the end of 2004 when it was demolished to make way for housing.
