In the late 1980's into the early 1990's screenings the 'the Prisoner' once again took place at the cinema on an annual basis during 'the Prisoner' Conventions. I recall how we would leave Portmeirion to assemble at the Coliseum before ten o'clock when the cinema closed after it's regular film screening of the evening, so that two episodes of 'the Prisoner' could be screened. Frank Ratcliff, a representative of Polygram attended each Convention, and brought the film of two episodes with him.
It was always exciting to queue up outside the cinema, with the anticipation of watching 'the Prisoner' on the "big screen," sometimes to the ridicule of the local towns people! And it was thrilling to watch an episode on the "big screen," in fact 'the Prisoner' was made for it, as there is so much more detail that can be seen, which is sometimes missed on the small screen. I say one episode, because although two episodes were screened, because of both the lateness of the hour, and the fact that my wife and I had been busy all that day working on re-enactments, we used to fall asleep during the screening of the second episode!
Be seeing you
