Quite nostalgic to see a picture of the 20th Century. Thank you Ken Roe (who does so much on other cinema sites to keep alive memories of the days when cinemas were special places). I managed the 20th Century for a couple of years from 1968. We had three changes of programme weekly and a similar booking-load at the Lido Drive-In which also came under the control of the 20th Century. The theatre became a gospel church and is now I believe a car showroom. I would like to think there are at least some pictures around the walls of when the 20th was a brightly lit magnet to young people when there was not much else to do in Lusaka. Terry Sharkey
