In the 50’s (these years were when I was living in Paddington) A feature of the Coliseum was sometimes the Water Rats from the Canal used to pop in to run across the platform in front of the screen. They were just big enough to throw a nice shadow low on the screen. Judging by the odd shriek there were some patrons who were not amused. I saw The Blue Lamp when it was on, myself and my mate Eric. It was a Thriller back then of course.
