Savoy Cinema, 1954

"Attended a showing of Law and Order (aged 14) starring Ronald Reagan and Dorothy Malone in the Savoy cinema in Renfrew St/Hope St. At a critical stage in the movie Ronald pushes open the saloon door and all of a sudden the main beam holding the safety curtain collapsed into the screen - people thought it was part of the movie. Then it dawned on them and panic erupted, emptying the cinema. I could not react quickly as my brother Peter (aged 10) was handicapped so we stayed put but ended up as one of the few who received a full ticket refund."
