The Ritz cinema, Edgware, north London, typical of British cinemas in the 1940s and 1950s

The Ritz cinema, Edgware, north London, typical of cinemas in their heyday. Note the billboards announcing the film title Lisbon Story with Patricia Burke and David Farrar. These date the photograph to after 1946 and probably around the 1950s. Photo reproduced according to the terms and conditions of Flickr. A photo in the Barnet Archive confirms that the cinema was in existence in the 1930s.

Also note the ever-present adjacent sweet shop, in this case Maynards.
