Forgotten the Last time I went to the Cinema probably the last James Bond Spectre. I do like Good old film Watched the original Cinema Version Of MASH on DVD the other night hat an interesting funny serious film.
Even with all the modern technology sound CGI etc i just can't be bothered with today's films  Too many animation films not enough Drama.But I am looking forward to [that is if is ever made] the new version of West Side Story directed by Steven Spielberg  I understand that the main parts have already been cast.

Me and a mate from school had the pleasure of seeing A Shot in The Dark with the lovable Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau . Plus the great actor Herbert Lom in the 60's , Those were the days people watched films, instead of setting the cinema alight
I'm always deeply suspicious when these sorts of buildings are set alight.  There has been a big campaign with local public support to get the building refurbished & back into use for the community, but could the landowners get more money from knocking it down & selling off the land for housing?  ::)

The answer of course Judith is YES. And councillors can get encouragement to ignore that these things happened

When I worked at the Adelphi Cinema in Hay Mills, one week we had Blue Hawaii as the main feature, the following week was The Young Ones. For both films there were people queuing down to Redhill Road. The ice cream and sweet sales were sky high that fortnight, apart from the projection team everybody got a good bonus. We felt sorry for the kids who attended the Saturday Minors club, the films were so badly scratched it is a wonder if they made any sense of them!

Don't worry Wally we as ABC minors still enjoyed all thae action at whichever picture houses we were at ie The Edgabaston, Crown, Ledsam, Lyric. Still remember those good old days thanks .
