    Getting in about 5 minutes before the end of the previous showing and staying in your seat until the next
    Time flies like the wind, fruit flies like bananas - go figure!

    Double-bills the norm rather than the exception. Being able to stay in your seat and watch the whole programme again if you wished--at least in the cinemas I attended. Pearl and Dean ad reels. Saturday morning cinema clubs for kids. Ads for cigarettes. 'X' cert films--weren't you so proud when you got in to see your first one? Kia-Ora pop in those rectangular plastic containers and tubs of ice-cream with those tiny plastic spoons. Dodgy short documentaries that were often shown prior to the main feature. Putting your arm round your girlfriend and trying for a kiss. The eclectic nature of some of the films and double-bills screened. Each cinema had an individuality that has been lost now that brand multiplexes dominate.

    Toilets inside the cinema (and only one screen per cinema!)
