The film appears to be something like 'A Certain Smile'?

Your comment below and the one about the Hoover cinema is interesting.  I shall insert the same date for both films, simply to illustrate that, whether Frank actually went to both cinemas on the day that he took the photographs or not, sometimes when it was hot and humid we did go to two cinemas one after the other simply to enjoy the air conditioning inside.  (Andrew)

Replacements to the tram tracks were on-going, especially on the tight bends.

The showing of 'Dunkirk' should give a fairly accurate date for this photograph.

Following Moddsey's providing the date window, I have changed this one's date to 1958-09-06, as I explain against the Roxy cinema photograph.  Andrew
