I joined the Regal in 1958 as a trainee projectionist, the equipment was modern and in good condition to other cinemas that I visited on day’s off. I remember Frank Cooper was second projectionist at the time. apart from the films, we had a stage show once a month with the likes of Shirley Bassey, The Dave Clark Five, Helen sharpiro etc Where we used the Spot lights or worked back stage, we also used the spots in the Regal Rooms for Cabaret’s, so training was the best around. I left there in 1960 as third projectionist at the Metropole, Victoria and then onto the Columbia, Shaftesbury Avenue. But my love as always been the “Regal” Edmonton.
