Trying to find a large image of this, I can only find smallish ones.

Loved the ABC cinemas, they did briefly return, but only saw them for what seemed a few months. Remember those happy days, we used to buy ABC Film Review, and after the film had finished, and before going home, we would have a last look at the front of house stills.

The ABC Cinemas Logo may still be copyrighted. Even though the company "physically" no longer exists. You have to be careful with such things.

Those were the days, we used to spend the day in our local ABC in the school hols, seeing it around again and sometimes again, I used to like to sit back and look up at the cigarette smoke catching the dancing projector beam, I would get Mum to blow smoke into the beam of my projector for the same effect on a smaller scale. They recently knocked down the old REX and are building flats on the site.

Never been a smoker Andrew, of course we all did it at school, and when I was in bands we smoked certain substances, don't get me started on managers and agents...
The REX.

I often used to look around at the projector beam; not knowing anything about cue marks in those days, I always wondered why brand new films had these marks. Happy days, reading 'ABC Film Review' before the lights went down and the curtain went up, then afterwards, another look at the front of house stills before getting the bus home. In those days we had to wait 5 years before a film could be shown on TV.

Glad to hear Steve! Extremely sensible... for the most part at least ha ha.

Robert, I am sure you're not alone regarding the cue marks from someone of a young age. I wasn't bothered what they were. I was just fascinated by the strobing effect from the countdown and thought it looked cool even without a reason.

Can you remember going to the cinema pre-school age; I used to get a seat on my own, then next minute some adult sat in front, and it became 'Dad, I can't see', and you would watch the film sitting on your parent's knee. I probably fell asleep through a lot of films.

Yes Robert, it would be an almost empty matinee, but some-one always sat in-front of you, I used to let the seat up and sit on the tiny edge of the up position of the seat, hard to put into words, also hard on the backside, but we just got on with it.

Dangerous sat on seat like that. When I was on holiday in Cornwall we went to see The Happiest Millionaire. I did just that, and fell off.

I have a railway film with ABC logo at the beginning of the title, I haven't viewed it for some time, but if I remember 'Associated British Cinema' is at the start before the film titles.
