    Hi

    Does anyone know anything about a V1 bomb hitting a crowded cinema in Ostend during late 1944?

    Friend says he was in the building next door - I think called the Union Jack Club.

    Are you sure it's Ostend?

    Antwerp
    On 16th Dec 1944 a V2 hit the Rex Cinema in the Avenue de Keyser at 3.30pm, killing 567 people, including 296 Allied service personel. They were part of an audience of 1,200 watching Buffalo Bill.

    Not that it matters, but the film was 'The Plainsman' not 'Buffalo Bill'.

    Thanks for the correction.
