Almost every Saturday during the 1960’s I went to the Strand. We saw 3 cartoons, one “scary” movie" and some B-rated film. So much fun!! All kids. often boardering on chaos. I feel sorry for the ushers' job to tell us all to be quiet and stop throwing popcorn at each other!!!
1960’s memory: In my youth, the Crown Theatre was off-limits because it showed “films for adults” according to my father. (needless to say, I went to the Crown whenever I could!) One of my fondest memories of that time was when (1964) – to my great surprise – my father took me to see “Les Parapluies de Cherbourg” at the Crown.
