    Night shots. Low angle shot of civic dignitary (probably the Mayor) standing on a balcony - he is reading out a declaration of the result of the poll on Cinema Opening on Sundays.

    Cutaway to the crowd gathered to hear the result. The crowd are lit up with search lights.

    Cut back to the returning officer.
