Hi I am part of a project looking for glasgow cinema goers from the 30s 40s 50s 60s and 70s. Do you have great memories of going to the old cinemas like govanhill picture house and many others all over the city? Would you like to share them for part of an exhibition for 2015 Glasgow Film Festival? You would need to live in Glasgow as we would like to talk to you in person and possibly record your stories on tape for the exhibit. If you or anyone you know could help then please get in touch. Many thanks!!!!
1950- 1957. Guvin . Ra lyceum, Plaza ( "we are the Minors of the A.B.C.") The Elder and the Vogue. I even went overseas tae Partick on occasions in the fare holidaes when having exhausted the offerings in Guvin. Big part of my young life as I lived two streets away from the Lyceum and the Elder and 5 min. walk from the Plaza.
The Vouge was an expedition, taking all of 15 min. to get there. We used tae scrape cadge an cajoal the 9 pence it cost tae get in tae the matinees. Chop fire wid at tuppence a bundle, seek oot bottles fur the deposit, oanything tae keep us going tae the movies. Remember nae T.V. nae money the pictchurs was every thing. In the darkness and the flickering light all the bad and sorry things were dissolved for few pennies in a way no other dream world could compete with.
