I honestly can’t remember, this is disappointing to me.

It would have been at Ashford Cineworld though:

Did you go Mandy’s Nut House?

To confirm: I don’t think I ever had the pleasure

can’t remember but would have been here:

Went to watch Cool Runnings with Daniel Just at the Cannon in Watford in.

Went again the following week with James Pearce to watch the same film.

Had a bag of Maltesers on both occasions.

Now it’s Ikky’s Barbershop

Absolutely no idea. Maybe Titanic? But that seems way too late.

Would have been the Picturedrome, Newport, IoW which is now a Yates:
