Civic Theatre down Arapuni Road.
".....was earning 30 shillings a week.... paid a third of that in board and the rest I had to myself and I thought I was marvellous. You only paid one and sixpence to go the pictures of course, and you met your different ones there: are you going? on yeah, yeah, I'm going, oh we'll go with you, so you went. But you bought your ticket earlier, before the time, because the town was open on a Friday night, that's where the main meeting place was for the teenagers, and I guess today's the same in Hamilton on a Friday night, the teenagers meet in the city"
