I started taking photos of Glasgow Cinemas in 1992, I was trying a new camera in Govanhill and when I asked a man what the name of the cinema I had just taken, he said that's not a cinema, its the shoe factory, its never been a cinema, well I knew he was talking mince, so that started me off taking shots of what was left of Glasgows cinemas
All the information about the cinemas, is from the book by Bruce Peter, "100 Years of Glasgows Amazing Cinemas"
