Some of my memorable times at the cinema's 1962/3 I was in St John's Ambulance got in the Gaumont free as I was on duty
saw Lawrence of Arabia I enjoyed it that much I had anothe six duties there, I watch it every time it's on the TV . Embarrassing moment me and a mate thought London in The Raw would be a rather steamy movie on the Cinephone Bristol St , so off we trot . We get in the door over to the ticket office bang the young lady giving out the tickets lived around the corner from me and probably knew I was underage , we acknowledged each other she gave me the ticket , the film was useless . The headlines read for this film "Five Healthy Men from Five Different Cities Fainted" over this film . Well you could understand it when you've watched blokes having plugs taken from their head and new hair cells implanted . Then finally one Sunday afternoon 1965/66 we went to the Scala Superama Smallbrook Queensway and saw the whole fifteen episodes of the 1943 of Batman . With J Carroll Naish(Charlie Chan) as Dr Dakar

I might have seen that one in the same place (but not the same day). Was that the one that had an episode with an over-the-cliff ending in which the hero is seen to have escaped from the car in the next episode although he was visibly in there on the first?
