I wrote recently that I spent a very enjoyable day travelling through the Surrey Hills, exploring the stunning scenery. However, one thing I didn’t expect to come across was evidence of a world-famous movie logo in a quiet English cemetery.
During the post WW2 years when I was a young lad growing up in East Belfast, the main source of entertainment for many people was the local cinema. No television was available then, and with my mother being profoundly deaf, listening to the radio was not an option. Only the written word and movies (‘the pictures’ was the term used) provided satisfactory leisure alternatives for the two of us, while my father was usually away working in England.
