Yesterday's item on the Military Cinemas brought a response from a regular blog reader, Richard Clubley. He provides today's piece with a photograph, taken a couple of years ago, of the former front and foyer entrance of the Flotta Cinema and of a life-long island resident, David Sinclair, who was eight-years of age when the Second World War started. David recalls being smuggled by servicemen into the cinema to watch films. By 1945 he was 14 and the action, both on- and off-screen, was over.
