Long time ago, in a cinema not so far away......

Ok, the forgotten space here is my own mind.

 

My wife was given a copy of the Romsey Advertiser from June 1980, by her parents. This had been preserved all that time as her role as a bridesmaid for a wedding is mentioned.

 

For me, the excitement was on page 6. The Odeon Cinema in Southampton was playing this little number. Probably my favourite film from childhood and I still think one of the best, if not the best, summer blockbuster movie.

 

This certainly brings back some memories for me. From queuing up outside the cinema for an hour to see it on it's first weekend, the sheer non-stop action and, best of all, the showstopping twist at the end. Enjoy.

 

Hmm
