Strange, I used to regularly go to Classic Films at the Nelson in the late Sixties and early Seventies, so its odd that the Nelson "has never done this before".

I'm going to miss Dave Smith the Lamp Maker. They were always really helpful and you could walk in with your lamp to fit shades. I remember when it was St Patrick's Day and he dyed his dog green and thought it would wash out fast and it didn't.
