St Albans cinema rescue
This is a picture of a bored eleven year old. It was a cold winter Sunday. The television had broken down and drawing pictures was not going to be enough for long enough. So we went and saw Big Foot and the Hendersons at the Odeon. Not a movie I'd make a huge effort to see again but it was entertaining enough to save the day. Not the only time the Odeon rescued anyone of course. I expect there are thousands of stories out there about the Odeon, or the Capitol as it was during WW2, rescuing people from boredom, depression, loneliness, anxiety.
Now, of course, the rescue is the other way round.....
