“Really; so how much does this cinema make in a week?’

Several hundreds of pounds I expect; it’s kept in the safe upstairs in Michael Sheckman’s office until he comes to collect it. . “This place gets full every night.

“What time do you close?’

“I am the last to lock up at 11.45pm every night.’

Billy’s mind was racing now, if he could find out how to break in then he could crack the safe and make a lot of money. He thanked Melvin and told him that he would see him later.

Once outside he walked around the back of the cinema where he saw a small window just big enough for him to get into. Climbing up to it would be a piece of cake because there was a large neon sign that had an iron grid behind it all he had to do was scale the wall and jump onto the grid sign then lean across and smash the window. Once inside he could take his time locate the safe then take the contents and be out of the building the same way he entered it.

 The back of the cinema was situated in a lane and the only buildings nearby were all shops. There were no residential houses to be seen. It was perfect.

He walked back into the mall picking up more things he would need for the job that night and placed them into a bag which he paid for.’

“Well I’ve seen the films we are going to watch said Billy with a smile as he opened the door. Gillian Rutherford came out with a dress on and her hair done and make up.’

“My, aren’t you a pretty one said Billy as he feasted his eyes on the tall blonde haired woman with a figure to die for and long slender legs and an ample bosom.

“I think I’ve just died and gone to heaven he exclaimed as he took hold of Gillian’s hand. They walked down to the cinema chatting as they went.’

“What are we going to see said Gillian excitedly?’

“Well there’s “Ice cold in Alex” with John Mills, Harry Andrews, Anthony Quayle and Sylvia Sims. And there’s “A Night to Remember.’ with Kenneth More.’

“Let’s hope so said Gillian.’

“Let’s hope what?’

“It’s a night to remember.’

“Oh I see he said with a laugh.’

“I see you’ve done a bit of shopping.’

Yes, I’ve got us some chocolates and drinks for in the interval.

“I brought you a couple of Chicken pasties which we sell a lot of to eat because I thought you’d be hungry.

“That was very thoughtful of you Gillian.’

Melvin Heron was stood outside as they approached.

Hello Melvin nice to see you again; Melvin I would like you to meet Gillian Rutherford. She owns the baker shop around the corner on St Stephen’s Street.’

Yes I think I know it.’ It’s a pleasure to meet such a beautiful young lady.’

“You must try her chicken pasties she has brought you down to try Melvin.’

Gillian went into her bag and took out the pasties then handed them over to the doorman.

“Why thank you young lady.’ “Here said Melvin going into the pocket of his coat.

“There are two passes for the best seats in the house for you.’ just show them to the young woman as you go in.’

“Thank you Melvin.’

“Enjoy the show.’

Billy led Gillian up the marble steps and into the cinema. It was like Las Vegas; the neon lights flashed on outside as it got dark.
