I began my working life as a projectionist here back in 1974,
before been transferred to the odeon in pilgrim street….
I dont think we will ever see a giant screen like it again... During a 70mm screening, there was nothing to compare it.... Picture and Sound quality were outstanding.... Screen size:- 75 x 31`.
I will remember the Queens with great affection….

HI, I took a few slides before closure, when Paul Beck kindly let me into the building to photograph it…..
Did you know Paul at all ??
I knew Tony Hartley too….
I worked at the Queens and Odeon as projectionist *
