The Orion Cinema - a Memory of Midhurst.

My grandmother, Violet Bowden, worked as a usherette at the Orion. I used to love the Saturday afternoon matinee shows that gave sweets as prizes.
Towards the end of the cinemas time my friend Robert Constable and I were watching a film when the manager asked us if we would mind coming back another day as we were the only customers and he wanted to close!!
