  1. I was Chief Projectionist for the Curzon Flixton and I knew Les Proctor who was Chief Projectionist when it was the Essoldo and his Wife was cashier. I remember them building the Longford and I also remember that they re-recorded most of the Frank Randal “Mancunian Films” at the Longford with the walls draped in carpeting for deading acustics

  2. Les is mentioned quite a lot throughout the site. If you click on Customer and Employee Memories on the right hand top side of this page, you might spot a few others!
