Sixty-nine year old Mr Charles Deeming, who built the Empire and Victory cinemas in Loughborough and later sold them to the Essoldo circuit, was married on Wednesday at Derby.
His bride was Mrs Olive Martin, who is in her early 40s and lived at 196 Western Road, Littleover, Derbyshire. The couple met on the south coast and returned there for the honeymoon.
Mr Deeming of One Ash, Quorn, who started showing films in the 1920s, still owns the Rex and Regal cinemas at Coalville. He also owned Loughborough's Theatre Royal until he sold out in 1953, the same year that his first wife died.
Mr Deeming is a past chairman of the Leicester branch of the Cinematograph Exhibitors' Association. He is also chief Civil Defence warden in Coalville.
His son Edward was best man at the wedding. The couple will live at Quorn.
