Just wanted you to know that my Grandfather, Robert Smith, was the Manager for the Govanhill Picture house for many many years. I have sent a picture of him also. He loved working there and was well respected and accepted by the people in the community. The lady that looked after selling tickets and also the kiosk was called Jennie.

I spent many a great afternoon at the Matinee. My Sister was an usher there and also ran for Miss ABC.Many fond memories!!

I have lived in Canada since 1957 but will never forget the good old Govanhill theatre.
