Oh no, not The Hippodrome!
June 17, 2008
Firefighters are damping down at the scene of a fire in a disused cinema in the centre of Wrexham.
North Wales Fire and Rescue Service were called to the Old Hippodrome on Henblas Street at 13.09 BST.
My brother and I used to go to the Hippo to see the kids’ Saturday morning show in the 1970s. Some cartoons, an old serial and some dodgy Children’s Film movie with a moral imperative. Nice.
We also saw Star Wars in 1977. We drank Kia Ora orange juice, ate white milk chocolate teddy bears (I know this because Brother ate all his before we even got in to the movie) and boo’d the bad guys and cheered the good guys. It was awesome.
