One thought on “Doncaster Gaumont /Odeon

  1. The only reason I would have visited Doncaster was for the history this place held. Original bands like the Beatles played there in their heyday and The great Buddy Holly, all the way over from Texas. But then this is what Britain does to it’s modern history. We will be a laughing stock generation to look back on, who had no interest in real history, just always looking for the green grass on the other side. But, the people get what they deserve in the end. Perhaps they can put another little blue plaque on a wall nearby, because that always give the next generation a real picture of history….hmm, perhaps that’s why we are like this today. And building a Casino?! That’s imaginative and I guess, the way ahead for the quick fixers!
