    "Forest Tucker" should read Forrest Tucker, (3 changes needed inc tags).

    "Sabrina being kissed by old age pensioner" - his name is Sgt Jimmy Wood.

    The cinema seen here was located on the corner of Brighton Terrace and Bernay's Grove in Brixton, and had formerly been The Empress Theatre.
