I worked at Clock Cinema in 1960s as projectionist using SIMPLEX american Projectors. These were later removed and new Westar Westrex film Projectors were installed.This Cinema was famous for its Festoon screen curtains and fluorescent stage lighting.

Doesn't it seem strange considering that Kershaws were only a few hundred yards up Harehills Lane, that their Kalee projectors weren't used?
