When I left the Kings West Bromwich. I was the first Manager to be appointed for the opening following its conversion from an old factory. It was then operated by the University and Wolverhampton Council. When I left Jas Kapur took over as the Manager who ironically was the projectionist I worked with at the ABC/EMI Cinema before it closed.
