I worked at the Gaumont, as a projectionist in 1965, happy days, we were mainly a cinema showing many big movies, but we also had live stage shows with very big pop stars from the sixties, I was only in my early teens, so I was all very exiting to me, I remember working the spotlight one show training it on Roy Orbison, another I was working with the chief projectionist back stage on the lighting dimmer board. I had collected many famous stars autographs, I wish I new what happened to my book
