  1. Made headlines in ” The Star ” , ” Potato Gun Gangs Close Cinema ”
    Film was “Our Man in Havana “…. for us youngsters…totally boring ! Anthony Shaw and I had taken our potato guns, and 1 spud!! Hardly a gang ! not EXACTLY a riot but we all got thrown out! Got reprimanded from parents( quite rightly ) when our participation discovered !

  2. Can remember when we use to go to the Matinees. Crisp with a blue salt bag inside, yuck when you chopped into it by mistake, we thought we were so grown up, great memories.
