I was assistant manager here from 1972 till 1972 with Tony Portch as manager. I fell in love with the place the first time I walked in for my interview with Tony.

I spent many happy hours here and at the other local cinema The Beacon, as I lived in Stamford Avenue which is nicely in-between these wonderful places, Kids club at both and strongest memory seeing The Dam Busters and my aunt Ida cheering as the dams burst.

Not only the “Commissionaire” patrolled the cineman when I worked there even the manageress used to do a walk-round and was known to pass comments to those patrons being naughty.

Ken Roe, What memories you stirred in me, I can remember seeing all the Cinerama films you mentioned. Do you by any chance have any photos or info on the travelling Cinerama theatre that toured the UK in the mid 1960’s?
