I don't remember the parade, but 1966 is about when the Batman film (based on the original TV series) was released. I went to see it at The Pavilion with my cousin. It was shown with a feature length Flintstones cartoon, I seem to remember. Perhaps the parade was something promotional to do with the film?

Just spoke to are kid and he reckons it was 1969 as he seems to think it was a promotional day for the Odeon cinema, as they had just done a refurb and converted it to a twin cinema. Hope this helps.
