Enjoyed reading all about the Pav here.....brilliant recalls and info...it certainly brought back memories of queueing it seemed like forever before the doors opened. Some queues were right out the entrance even, onto the footpath on Marine Road.
There were coloured posters behind glass up on the walls either side of the doors, I don't think they ever changed, the same posters there permanently.
One poster had the following written across it.
GRIPPING IN ITS REALISM!
I'm pretty sure about that one, but there was at least one more, which may have said....
ARRESTING IN ITS DRAMA!
or something like it.
Anyone remember these posters?

Horror films being discussed elsewhere reminded me of THE horror film that really got to me as a kid. I think I saw it in the Pav. It was called THE BEAST WITH THE FIVE FINGERS and starred Peter Lorre. :shock: :shock: :shock:
There was a human hand, roaming around this big old house, at times playing the piano, at times ascending the stairs....totally disembodied! It terrified me, I watched most of the film down on the cinema floor looking through the gap between the seats. :shock: :shock: :shock:

A certain Alphonso Dabruzzo starred alongside Peter Loréé. He became known as Robert but he shortened his surname to mirror the first letters of his full name - ALphonso DAbruzzo - becomming Alda
He was the father of Alan Alda (of MASH fame)

The scariest thing was being caught trying to get through the fire door. :D

Now that i am thinking about that horror film ...I don't think there was any age limit or parential guidance or any rubbish like that when we were children. We mostly went on our own on Saturdays or Sundays, met up with other children the either went to Stillorgan or Dún Laoghaire and went into what ever was playing.If it was a musical we walked home singing and dancing the scenes, cowboy pictures we went home air shooting each other, but, the scary ones...we made sure we didn't tell our parents.

The gas thing is that we never had a watch as children but, instinctively managed to arrive home for meal times. :lol: The night time outing was special. One day a week my Ma went to the pictures and Da stayed in to watch us, as a treat she often brought one of us with her and then Da brought the others on his night at the pictures. Bonding time...the excitement of running down Marine Road with one of your parents....heartwarming....

Ha, Rocker! I think you would have more than just disembodied hands to worry about, during your days in the back row of the Regent!

I never realised Mr Flemming was such a scary guy that they made a film about him. :shock: :shock: :shock:
