A Piece of Cinema Trivia. “Rodney Cinema” is named after a son of Walter Eckart. the owner of Star Cinema.. Rodney and his Brother (Who at the moment I cannot remember his name) Took over the Star Group)

As a five year old, I was taken in a school party to the Rodney one afternoon in 1953 to see “A Queen is Crowned”. Last visited in 1964 to see “Tom Jones” at which time the cinema still had a relatively large screen (CinemaScope looked particularly good there)and plain brown screen curtains lit by two ceiling mounted pageant lanterns.
