I always thought that “news theatres” at main line stations was a great idea, because the entire programme including, short and cartoon was over in 60 mins.

By the time I first visited this cinema, it had moved on to double features. I had just missed my train and instead of waiting for the next one, I watched “The Sand Pebbles”, not being aware that the film was over three hours long. I was supposed to be visiting a friend in hospital in Epsom. I eventually arrived at my destination nearly five hours late.

Featured in this 1944 short film: London Terminus. The whole thing is worth a watch, but the scenes with this cinema start at around 2:40 in.
