I have spent many an hour in the Crown as a kid cheering the Yanks on in a war film, and later on in the back row with girl friends.

The Crown was my local. We used to sneak in by way of the exit situated to the left of the screen, I onced sneaked in and got the shock of my young life they were showing the werewolf it frightned me so much I had to leave the cinama. I also did a lot off my courting in this place. It was just down the road off Green Lane, I used to live off Skillbeck Street, Victoria Place.
