Arthus Gale is recorded as a Cinematographer and he owned a number of cinemas some with the Hyams' Brothers.
The following is reproduced by Arthur Lloyd from the Bioscope Cinema Magazine, 13th July 1931 in relation to the Trocodero, Elephant and castle
On Monday, at the opening performances, the whole of the vast auditorium was literally packed and the applause at times was deafening.
To the confusion of their critics, H. & G. Kinemas have proved, by the most daring venture, that there is among the "popular" public a real appreciation, not only for good music, but for grand opera.
It was truly amazing to witness the vociferous appreciation displayed by the Trocadero audience, which included masses of people drawn from the densely populated and democratic neighbourhood surrounding the Elephant and Castle. The staggering fact emerges that it had been possible to give this large audience a full 3½ hour programme, including two feature "talkies" and the opera, for prices varying from 6d. to 2s. 4d.
The undoubted success of the experiment is due in no small degree to the network of organisation of the General Manager, Mick Hyams, and the Manager, James Holland. Every member of A. Van Damm's large orchestra also deserves to share in the congratulations.
It is estimated that over 15,000 people attended during the opening day, and this fact gives the lie direct to the assumption that people drawn from the working and artisan classes have no room for anything but the most flippant musical comedy and cheap jazz.
The Article on Opera at the Trocadero was first published in the Bioscope Cinema Magazine, 13th July 1931.
Arthur Gale was also a special guest at the opening of the Granada in Tooting in 1931
