Readers’ queries: When did the Salon Picture House close?

Have your say

Q Mr Dougie Millar writes from Livingston looking for Leith locals to tell him when the Salon Picture House was closed down.

Mr Millar – who is now 67 – used to be a regular visitor to the venue.

“The Salon was a regular Saturday night out for me in my younger days, which were a long time ago. I was brought up in Edinburgh and, although I am staying in Livingston, 
I look at Edinburgh in the distance as my home city. I don’t have internet or broadband as it’s too hi-tech for me. Every time I go down to Leith, I look at the old Salon Picture House as it is in a sad state, but as I said earlier it was a favourite haunt of mine.

“I’d be very grateful if you can find out this information for me.”
