The Rex Cinema in Berkhamstead. This is the 2,000th photo I have uploaded to Flickr. Hooray for me!

    Blimey, the town where I spent my first 20 years. It seems to have recovered from the vandalisation carried out by 3 schoolfriends who shall remain nameless (the shame).

    I saw Alice In Wonderland there aged 6 and couldn't face a horror-genre movie until I was about 20; and a double-bill of Carwash & Animal House in about 1979 - probably the first time I saw Americans talking.

    Apparently, since he lived nearby, Stanley Kubrick visited it to check the sound system was good enough to show 2001.

    A great 2000th photo.
