Entertainment-Dhillon Advano 6R

In World War two one of the most important things was entertainment, it was important because it kept everyone happy and informed during the worst times.

Cinema

Although televison was invented by then not many people had them so they went to the cinema for entertainment. But because of the war in September 1939 the goverment closed down all the cinemas. Later the goverment realised the mistake they made and that they needed them to tell the public the news on the war. Pathe news told the citizens of britan how the war was going. the cinema also was a place for the people to see information films to tell people how they had to behave during the war. Other films told people to keep quiet incase a German spy heard anything.
