I worked has a trainee projectionist at this Aaben cinema for about 3 months after leaving school in 1977. Even then it was a magnificent building inside. Always remember my last job when finishing at night was to go down into the basement and turn off all the exterior lights. Still sends shivers down my spine to this day. I did used to sneak down there with one of the young usherettes when all the films were running (young love). The manager used to send me to the bank with the weeks takings every week.(not an undertaking I would like to do now)

I have very fond memories of this cinema in the 1970s. Saw many iconic films including China town, one flew over the cuckoos nest, the tenant and themroc! Vince.
