|Description:||Bradford Alhambra Theatre|
I remember in '69 we went down to Bradford to see film. That was last show and it was Manchester Road. The last bus was after ten and the film finished quarter to eleven on a Saturday, so there was no bus and no taxi. So I start walking from Manchester Road to Heckmondwike.
When I get to the open shop the police behind us they asked "Where are you going?" We said "We're going home. We missed the bus." He said "Get in and we'll take you home" They were so helpful. The police were so helpful and even the shopkeepers were so helpful. Ordinary people were helpful. Very, very helpful.
Entertainment. When I came here there were some Asian cinemas in Bradford. With old film, without missing a Saturday or Sunday, we used to travel to Bradford on a bus, first thing in a morning half past nine.
We used to live in Liversedge. We used to get bus from there, 9:40 bus, Sunday morning standing at bus stop whether snowing, raining or sun shining, whatever, regardless. We used to go to Bradford and watch the 12 o'clock showing.
