I wasnt sure about putting this on here as its getting abit repetitive,
but considering I was staying across the road it would of been rude not too. :D
I met at least 4 members & non members, (as expected) while visiting.
I cant remember your user names, but nice meeting you all.

I really like that. I know it has been done a lot, but I love the old style cinemas that prospered in the golden age, especially now that everything is on DVD, they just don't make them like that anymore. Definatley looks like a worthwhile mooch. Cheers for posting.
