    Default A trip down memory lane

    My first memory of the movies was back in the sixties when I and a couple of mates would sneak into our old hometown picture theatre thru a loose wooden board. We managed to get away with it for some time until the manager finally twigged and threatened to ban us and if we did it again to tell our parents or the police. I do not recall the title of my first movie but I was a devotee of the old American serials and the Disney cartoons. We would gorge ourselves on the confectionery treats at that time. Recall the choo choo licorice bars, choc wrapped fantales with a bio of a famous movie star on the wrapper and this yummy sherbet like item that you sucked as you spun it on a string. I kid you not. Anyone else have an anecdote of their first cinema experience?

    My uncle use to take me to see James Bond films in the 70s. I was about 9, 10 and 11 years. I am sure they were rated AA. I think you had to be okder than 12 maybe

    Carry on Camping late 60's at the Regency Cinema now Regency Bingo Hall in Cirencester Gloucestershire UK

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    my cousins were going to the cinema to watch jaws and they took me and another of their younger cousins with them. we were both 5 years old. when we got there, they surrounded us and ushered us through to the screen it was being shown on.
