Videodrome on York St

Postby Alanangles » Wed Oct 24, 2012 10:54 pm

Anyone else out there who frequented The Videodrome on York St in the mid to late 80s? It seems strange to think now, but it was such a cool place with all the tv screens everywhere. And only 100 yards from Henry Afrikas for those who were going 'up the dancin'!! And yes, Cookies was then visited for a pizza!! Happy days :)

I went to Henri Afrikas, and remember the Videodrome but never went in it. Didn't it used to be a puggy arcade at one time too?

Not sure about the puggys. It was a good night in there though (apart from the odd ned or two)!

I played a few gigs there and remember it as a decent venue.
