Have your say
I remember seeing Elvis on screen for the first time, hilarious, Bill Haley too in Rock around the Clock,and South Pasific, on the double seats, back row, called (the fiddly row) and when I look back, it gave the film an whole new dimension. Poshest picturehouse we had back then and the sweet shop on the opposite corner did it's bit too.
I CAN REMEMBER GOING ON A SATURDAY MORNING TO THE PICTURES THROWING POPCORN ,SITTING ON THE BALCONY,WAITING FOR THE FLIM TO START OH HAPPY DAYS.
I remember going to see The Exorcist and The Heretic at the Ritz.I loved the choc ices with the ice-cream lady at half-time. on...It seemed we had to wait 6 months for the films to get up to Workington from London.
