December 29, 1965 - Premiere of new James Bond film 'Thunderball' at The London Pavilion Cinema

The UK film premiere of 'Thunderball' (the night of December 29th 1965) was such a big event that there was a 'dual premiere' - two locations were used. The London Pavilion Cinema, where 'Dr. No' had premiered in October 1962, hosted one and guests included Claudine Auger, Adolfo Celi, Luciana Paluzzi, Tania Mallet and Honor Blackman. The Rialto Cinema hosted the other - guests included Guy Doleman, Molly Peters and Martine Beswick.

Tom Jones singing Thunderball was not my idea of a great Bond theme although his What's New Pussycat was delightful!
