Lyn Humphrey… Mr Grimsdale!” Loved that old film, and a later follow-up, ‘A Stitch in Time’. Me & my little mates had never laughed so much!
Allan Mitchell… Those were the days
Who remembers going to see The good the bad and the ugly?
Nick Prince… The Curzon Cinema (now Kino-teatr) in St Leonards holds the record for the longest run of any film of any of the eighty film venues to have operated in the borough with the Sound of Music.. a total of 124 weeks, these include two runs of 26 weeks and alternative weeks for a further year. five times the ppulation of the town saw the film here.
Judith Monk… I certainly did and Dr Zhivago…lovely cinema.
Andy Davies… God, as a seven year old I was taken to the Sound of Music at the Curzon, I hated it then and to be honest still kind of do……..
Wendy Weaver… Graham says he was too young to see it 😆😆😆. I’ve seen it several times though

Sarah Harvey….Two of many music-featured films I saw during the 1970s. Actually went to see both of these at The Curzon in St.Leonards. December 1973.
Alan Esdaile….Great Film and Great Soundtrack.
John Storer…..Now that’s a coincidence … have been listening to the Easy Rider soundtrack this afternoon!I saw both of these at that salubrious cinema, The Orion, along with a number of other films with great soundtracks … Zabriskie Point, Vanishing Point, and Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii to name a few. Then, of course, there was that other great double bill “Don’t Get Your Knickers In A Twist” / “Most Girls Will” … oh wait … that was a different Saturday afternoon LOL
Sarah Harvey…..Aha John…..I may have gone to see Easy Rider with you and Kevin Potter….you both seem to be the most likely candidates since I didn’t go to see them on my own.
Mick Knights…..The Curzon, now there was a cinema, if you went in the afternoon there was tea and biscuits served between the films!
Alan Esdaile….. I remember the teas and biscuits in the afternoon, very sedate. Mind you I think we were still smoking in the cinemas then? Used to always ask if they had any spare posters and occasionally got some good ones for the bedroom wall. Otherwise would buy them from the second hand shop at the top of Western Road.
Sarah Harvey….I remember the smoking….I have never smoked but I seem to remember the projector capturing the rays from everyone who was puffing on a No6 or No.10! I used to come out smelling like an ashtray!

John Mcewen…..Remember it so well, No. 6 fer me cos i woz posh in them days!
John Storer……Now you come to mention it, Sarah … have a recollection of us at the flicks watching a film about the Montreux Jazz Festival. It had Zeppelin performing “Dazed and Confused” and also featured the Modern Jazz Quartet, who failed to impress any of us. And I’d like it noted for the record that I never smoked No 6, let alone No.10 … It would have been Peter Stuyvesant for me (or possibly Consulate during my “menthol” stage) There was another cinema in Hastings town centre … memory is vague but it was on the road just round the corner from the old Post Office (looking at Google Earth now, Hastings looks unrecognisable to me) on Havelock Road. I remember it because …. it had a bar! The barmaid was lovely. Jill Haylock, if memory serves.
Nick Prince… The Penguin Cinema had a bar for patrons, the ABC had a cafe. Smoking wasnt banned in cinemas until the national ban came in about 7 years ago but by then only a handful of cinemas, mainly independents still allowed it and most of these were in the West Country. I think the Dome Cinema in Worthing was the nearest to still allow it as to did the London Coronet chain.Cannon banned smoking in auditoriums of less than 200 seats in 1985 and in every screen in 1987. The Odeon chain in 1991, Curzon, Bexhill in 1992 (and admissions collapsed) and the Curzon Eastbourne in the very late 90s.
Pete Fairless… What a great film!
Derek Clemans… Bloody hell. … I went to see that at the Curzon.
Carol Ann Bolton… I’ve not heard of this before. Must try and see it?
Graham Burfield… Just watched it on DVD still a great film
Mick Knights… The Curzon was a delight at the matinee interval when tea and biscuits were available, which reflected the age of their usual cinema goer!!!
Alan Pepper… Ha ha !! Has got to be one of the better Carry On films ( one of my favorites -) Peter Butterworth as Mr Fiddler in charge of the camp site is hilarious too !
Paul Juan… A week before I was born
Keith Cowper… You missed Babs Windsor’s boobs!
Tony Ball… A good film, one of the best Carry ons
Martin Richter… looks like *talking pictures tv*!
Peter Fairless… Saw ‘Love Bug’ at the Classic
Ralph Town… Peter, me too, good to know when you went to these things, now the old memory is almost full lol.
