Les Triplettes de Belleville
2003: Walter Francisco joined the cinema
Following a short period by Ellen Cheshire as Cinema Manager, we were delighted to welcome Walter Francisco who arrived from Australia and Portugal in 2003. As the General Manager he dived enthusiastically into an extreme learning curve resulting in 100% success. His wining personality is a valuable asset to the cinema. I invited Walter to select one of his favourite films, and has chosen this wonderful animated feature. - Roger Gibson
