We have been celebrating 45 years since our usher, Allen Pollock began volunteering for Plymouth Arts Cinema. We would like to extend a wholehearted thank you to Allen for the many hours he has dedicated to our organisation.
Here is a quote from Allen, after covering last weeks’ film, The Great Escaper:
“I have been somewhat unwell of late but as I started as a volunteer way back in October 1978 I was determined to cover yesterday’s matinee… The whole experience made me feel so much better and confirmed the fact that cinema-going can still be a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in a world fraught with hostility and sadness especially as the two main stars were so brilliant in their roles in a lovely film.”
In the past we have interviewed Allen about his memories of many years of cinema going, and you can watch/ read these here:
