This is a rather damaged photo of the old academy ratio screen, before the installation of Cinemascope. It was taken by the then 2nd projectionist Mr Bill Kenny, who went on to become Chief projectionist at the Town Hall Cinema, and then manager.

The screen actually had sharp box like corners, but John Hughes made these nice curved corners either with plywood or hard cardboard, I’m not quite sure, and painted them black. Climbing up ladders came easily to John, the top of the screen was quite high, He used to erect television antennas around Pwllheli as a sideline, as well as being an outstanding self taught tv engineer as Mr Morris has already pointed out in one of his posts.
