Saturday Mornings at the Gaumont by Adrian

An extract from Adrian’s contribution to the memories on the Havelock Rec in 2018, he writes:

“On Saturday mornings many of us attended the Gaumont cinema at Bromley South where, for sixpence, we would sing popular songs before watching features like Zorro, Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers and Dick Barton – Special Agent.  At one time we had yoyo championships on stage and my pal Pete Gilbert, another Raglan Road pupil, won a dart board and I won a cricket bat which I still have.”

There’s more about the Gaumont cinema, on the lower “Broadway” part of the High Street, in our page High Street No. _44, the former Gaumont Cinema – Heritage Building Profile
