No Chris, it's still Capitol who used to operate from Wardour St.

My memory is fading, but didn't Capitol Film Distributors sell Castle Super 8 imports from their premises at 193 Wardour Street?

Walton Sound and Film Services were at 87 Richford Street.

Nope.
Amazing when we cast our minds back to the early 70’s (a clue) just how many cine equipment and film suppliers covered the UK.

As far as I'm aware they seemed to disappear from the scene by
the '70's,but were there in '69.They sold the usual stuff plus
adult films which were the fairly innocent titles.
