You're having a laugh: New Laurel and Hardy movie mirrors duo's Belfast visit 

One of my great regrets is that I never got to see Laurel and Hardy live on stage. In the late-1960s, when I would have been 14 or 15 years old, my dad Sam used to take me to Belfast for a trip around Smithfield's secondhand bookshops. We always had lunch in the Kensington Hotel (it used to be on College Square East), followed by a trip to the nearby Classic cinema. That's where I first saw Stan and Ollie - those were the days when cinemas still showed a few shorts between the B feature and the main film.
