My grandfather Cyril Chalk ran this when it was the Majestic with his wife Barbara Chalk, I recently found this article: High Wycombe, Majestic in Castle Street. This would later become the Odeon, and was very ornate inside with murals of mountainous countryside on the walls with turrets in the foreground. The enterprising manager, Mr Cyril Chalk, would arrange a display in an empty shop and have a fantastic display on the cinema itself to advertise the current screening, and was even seen driving round with a cardboard cutout of Mae West
