…it is part of my family history as my brother was the projectionist there for several yrs. I used to sneak in with my brother and sit up in the box or else creep in and sit on a back row in the dark to watch any films, I got thrown out a few times because some of the films were adult ones. I would only be about 10 or 12 yrs at the time. Happy days.
