Can't get enough of movies? Then head over to Mumsnet Films!
How can they?Yes it's trashy as hell, and the toilets leak and the booze is shite, but it's got history.
Has been on the cards forever though hasn't it?Such a shame, is a great venue (if a little sticky)
Sticky is not the word. Last time I went I had to roll my jeans up as the area around the toilets was flooded with pissy beery mess.
I think they gave up on trying to clean it long agoStill lovely thoughI ahve seen some great gigs in therte
Now trying to think of best gigs there - I appeared to spend every other weekend there at the height of Britpop [aged crone emoticon].Brixton Academy is a better venue I think though. Now if they try and pull that down for development I'll be chained to the doors!
Crossrail, innit.Never liked the Astoria. Crap sound, no atmosphere.
No atmosphere I so disagree!
It is shocking that there are no more big live music venues in central London.I saw the best ever gig of ,my life there -- Manics in 1994
