Our first date was at the ‘pictures’ on 19 September 1965 to see Lucky Jim. We must have hit it off because we will be celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary at Easter.George Whitelock (La Scala, 1965)

My Mum was an usherette in the 60s/70s at the Cosmo. I remember being taken in to see Fantasia a few times and running down the aisle in the dark to meet her at the end of her shift. Remember the cinemas...
