Films were being presented at the Mowlem before the 1990’s.There was I think a partnership between the projectionist whose name escapes me and ‘Rusty’ Irons who operated the nearby Rex Cinema in Wareham.They owned the machines which were Kalee 12’s with Kalee ‘Universal’ arc lamps, later replaced with Kalee 19’s and ‘President’ arcs. This was certainly all happening in the 1980’s when I worked as a projectionist at the Rex and accompanied ‘Rusty’ to the Mowlem in order to change a sticking arc motor.
