    This cinema is one of many, that belonged to our family business started by my Grandfather Joseph Cohen.

    For anyone looking to know more, I have created the History of Jacey Cinemas Ltd., where I have provided lots of information with photographs, about our cinemas and Joseph Cohen, on my website. http://www.jncohen.net
