THIS picture shows the Dominion Cinema in Carnoustie's Park Avenue which, at one time, was one of two cinemas in the town - the other being The Regal in Dundee Street.
Originally called The Pavilion, it was renamed circa 1970. It was constructed in 1912 to provide the town with a public hall and was utilised as a theatre, concert hall and cinema.
To the left is Carnoustie's former Masonic hall and is now the Ganges Indian restaurant. Prior to this it was 11 Park Avenue restaurant and, for a time, was a youth disco, Lips.
Carnoustie Theatre Club used the Dominion for rehearsals in the early 1980s. The front of the building also housed a printing business owned by Harry Best.
It was demolished in the mid-1980s and the area is now occupied by flats with off-street parking.

Stroll down memory lane at the pictures

Memories are made of this, as the saying goes, and staff at the Kinloch Care Centre, Carnoustie, were in full nostalgia mode in January.
