AN evening of archive films in Lyme Regis revealed Dorset life dating back more than 80 years.
The one-off event at the Marine Theatre - Those were the Days - was financially supported by the town council.
Cllr Jeff Scowen attended the show and presented the organisers with a cheque for £239.60.
The silent films of Dorset life were accompanied with traditional songs, performed by a group of Lyme Regis singers and musicians, working in partnership with the charity Windrose Rural Media Trust.
