  1. How do you get involved with this? The standard newspaper mentions people with memories and images, stuff can get involved. Many thanks Mr Westwood (previous odeon technician at chester)


  2. Love the fact that it was the Chester Film Society who sent me the link with info on this Chester Film CO-OP and yet, when I spoke to Janet about Chester Film Society, all I recieved as a reply is a “Who? Who are they?”, lol!
