I don’t know why the YouTube link for the British Pathe newsreel clip doesn’t work where you are, as it works fine for me. I know you can’t click on it from here, it has to be copied and pasted into your browser and then click on it there or just press enter. Anyway, if that still doesn’t work, go onto YouTube and put the words England Under Water (1958) into their search engine and if that still doesn’t work, then maybe they clip can’t be seen outside the UK.

I think the previous correspondent (Mr.Rayner) means 1961 referred to in the main text rather than 1971, but the link doesn’t work and we would need the video title of sorts to get round the problem.

In any event from from the first paragraph of the profile, it’s claimed that the cinema was an ABC from the outset in 1939. Probably the new DESIGN of logo was introduced in 1961 then?

What we do have is this old Market Harborough view from the 1950s showing the old design of logo on each side of the main structure

It was an ABC long before 1971. Here it is in a newsreel clip from June, 1958.
