Thanks, both of you. Blary does ring a bell. I seem to remember hearing the names Old Finlay and Young Finlay.

So did I! I still think it looks like him but I'm sure Amron will know better.

These were taken with an old cine camera, 1976, I think. They were copied over twenty years ago using an old video camera pointed at the screen so don't expect very much. If I ever find the orignal film again I'll get them transferred properly. They may be of interest to someone.

I'll put this on the end as it's got my favourite cinema on it....

They don't seem to want to show up on here, but the urls are there if anyone's interested.
