Walter Aylen and Staff 1960s

Manager, Walter Aylen is on the left making a presentation to Assistant Manager, Ken Close as he transferred to another Rank Theatre in the mid 1960’s. Walter was a seasoned Rank Manager who started at the Palace Sunderland (a Gaumont theatre) in the 1930’s. I knew Ken as Manager of the Odeon Halifax when I used to take over as Relief Manager at the ABC in the same town in the mid 1970’s where we had some good times. I heard from Ken recently and he is still alive and well and living in Halifax.

I think that the main feature is ‘Cool Hand Luke’ (Paul Newman) which would date the photo to 1967.

Alan Smith looked like Roy Orbison.
