My manager from the ABC Huddersfield came from the ABC Brixton, then returned to Streatham . Left Bricxton 1968 went to Streatham when it was tripled in early 70s.

I did relief projection work there from my base at the ABC Streatham. A mate of mine, Phil Young, was senior second Projectionist. He went on to Elstree Studios as a projectionist and I followed sometime later, after he joined the sound-camera department. He later went out to live in Jamaica and worked in television there until he retired.

I wasn’t born in Brixton, but lived there from 6 months old (in 1944) until 1969, when I got married and moved to Luton. I remember the old Palladium well, and always bunking in the side door when an ‘A’ film was on. I was about ten and it was so obvious I wasn’t old enough to see an ‘A’ film without an adult being present. The last film I remember seeing there was when I was about ten. It was called ‘Invasion from Mars’, recently shown on digital free view. My mum took me to see it, and was bored out of her mind. I liked it though. Yes, things have changed since those days, and cinemas are certainly not what they used to be.

Melbourne Holman was my grandfather’s brother. He later became a lay brother at Buckfast Abbey, Devon where he later died. My father was telling me about him and the Wurlitzer so I looked it up on Google….and here it is! Many thanks.
