Cinema Marquees in the Strangest of Places

Vintage footage of cinema marquees have been turning up in the most unlikeliest of places recently, last week’s Film 2011 included a quick glimpse of the Leicester Square Jacey Cinema playing a double-bill of Exposed and The Yes Girls in a piece about the release of the original Straw Dogs (to tie in with the obligatory bad remake). This was topped only by a BBC2 documentary on Lulu, which included footage of Naked As Nature Intended playing the Cameo Moulin cinema, meant to visualise early 1960s London, though I’d wager a bet that Lulu never went to the Cameo Moulin cinema to watch a nuddy film.
