PAVILION, SELSEY. An all "U” programme for the whole of the week at the Pavilion, Selsey also brings with it the increased prices made necessary by this year’s Budget. The prices will now be 2s 6d., 2s., 1s. 6d. and 1s. as from to-morrow and during August and September the management are also staging two houses each night at 5.30 and 8. The first film to be showing under the new prices will be ’’THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE,” the brilliant English school comedy starring Alastair Sim and Margaret Rutherford. The story revolves round the fact that under the Ministry of Education’s resettlement scheme the boys and masters of Nutbourne College are asked to share their accommodation with another school, St Swlthin’s. Nutbourne is full up and to add to the chaos. St. Swithin’s proves to be a girls’ school, and the pupils arrive complete with mistresses. For the remainder of the week, the film version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic "TREASURE ISLAND" will be the attraction. Starring Bobby Driscoll, Robert Newton and Basil Sydney, the film, which is a Walt Disney presentation, captures the romantic and thrilling atmosphere of the novel.
