The Chief Projectionist at the Roxy when it closed on Saturday, November 23rd,1957, was Jimmy Stockton and he had already applied to become chief at Focus, Longton, Stoke on Trent, the job to start on Monday, November 25th. The odd thing was that the last film that Jimmy ran at the Roxy was the X certificate horror opus “The Creature Walks Among Us”, which played a week at the Roxy and which Jimmy would run again for a week at the Focus, commencing on Monday, December 2nd, 1957. It seems that the creature followed him from the Roxy to the Focus and that it may well have been the same copy of the film on both occasions.
