I was introduced by my father, Arthur Raymond, to the jovial Mr Holderness about 1937 when I was about fourteen. One length of the cinema must have been about 50 yards.or at least five minutes' walk.The foyer was magnificently decorated and a series of steps on each side led to the gallery, adjoining a very delightful restaurant. The manager, Chris Cassidy, who resembled actor Dick Powell, always appeared in the foyer in evening dress. There is a photograph of mine of the operator at work in the projection room, taken in 1942.
