The Alhambra – Monifieth

Door Alhambra

Monifieth`s home of the movie picture show. The Alhambra was not the first cinema to entertain the local residents with the magic of moving pictures. There had been others, however, it is most likely that today`s `native villagers` will fondly recall the `fleapit`.

The site of the building is now occupied by the petrol filling station, which replaced the Alhambra Garage, successor of the picture house.

In 1936 the manager was Mr R. Wood, Jun, who could be contacted by telephoning Monifieth13.
