The film The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp burst into flames during a show at the Don Cinema, West Bar.

The projectionist put the fire out with an extinguisher and a blanket before the fire brigade arrived.

I lived in Bridge Street in the 50`s, On the right side of the don was a entry and it lead into the front seating area. There was always some old guy sitting just inside the door that led to the outside toilets. I would wait until someone came out then walk in and nod to the old guy and not once did he stop me watching for free.
