The Anonymous Widower

The Tunnel Road Cinema in Liverpool

Despite always being an avid filmgoer, I never got to go to Liverpool’s most infamous cinema. But as they were talking about horror movies on the radio I remembered this story about the place.

On Sunday nights, they used to show bad horror films with little on no merit at all. The audience then generally had a good time and often made everybody laugh, by being much funnier than the film.

On one particular night, the following conversation ensued between a couple of blokes in the cinema, according to a friend of mine at the time.

Aggressive male voice: “Get em off”

Squeaky female voice: “No!”

AMV: “Come on! It won’t hurt!”

SFV: “No! I’m still a virgin!”
AMV: “Alright then!”

At which point, he ripped his handkerchief in two and the audience collapsed in laughter.
