I used to go to the ABC Minors matinees held every Saturday at the Coliseum during 1948/49.

I was a Trainee Projectionist at the Picture House in 1950, from memory the No 1 was called Tommy and we were equipped with Kalee 8 projectors, Brockliss Monarch arc lamps and British Acoustics sound system, we showed the first 3D movies at that time with both projectors running in synchronisation via a universal joint connection. I used to relieve at the Playhouse Cinema as well when they were reequipped with the BTH Super projection system.
