It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

Ah, the days of usherettes with torches telling you to get back to the front 1/6d seats! As well as the main film you had a 'B' film plus a newsreel - what a bargain!

How times change! Kia-Ora orange or a Lyons choc ice was the height of eating enjoyment back then!

I would love to see the old photos as my Aunty was cashier there for many years and her friends, Mr & Mrs Husted were the managers. They were originally from Belgium. It was great for me & my sister as on the Saturday matinees we would be led to the front of the long queue and let in early. I remember them saying that when the Bill Hayley film was shown there the Teddy Boys started ripping the cinema seats!

My mother also worked part time as an usherette and I remember her cycling home at night from Gerrards Cross and sometimes stopping off at the Chalfont chip shop at the bottom of the common and bringing us home hot chips which we ate in bed as a treat!
