i did indeed. hardly ever missed it. the talent on offer for a free ticket for the next sat was the best entainment there was. better than most films at that.
robert semple and me usualy went there together. we used to go see the odd horror film and the odd good western. the good the bad and ugly stands out. unfortunaly it got to the stage you couldnt go near the place.
