The Lindsey Theatre Lectures: London Afternoon Series.
One thing has always fueled the explosive growth of Scientology: spectacular results. And that was the subject of this landmark public lecture series given to standing-room-only crowds at London’s New Lindsey Theatre in October 1955.
Over a period of four weekends, L. Ron Hubbard delivered what will forever stand as a classic introductory series on Dianetics and Scientology. Every lecture is an education in basic Scientology—“The Goals of Dianetics and Scientology,” “Power of Choice and Self-determinism,” “How Good You Can Get” and “The Dynamics,” among others.
Now available for the first time as their own series, and invaluable to Scientologists at all levels, these lectures provide a vast array of tools for anyone and everyone to use, and stand as an enduring statement of the goals, principles and application of Scientology across the dynamics.

The New Lindsey Theatre, near Notting Hill Gate, was a popular venue in the early 1950s, frequented by British royalty and with a stage graced by such acting luminaries as Dirk Bogarde and Kenneth More—the last named soon to achieve enduring fame in Britain with his portrayal of World War II Spitfire ace Douglas Bader in the 1956 movie, Reach for the Sky.
Yet, as was soon evident, Mr. Hubbard’s lectures were a phenomenon unique to themselves—for his appearances crammed the theatre far beyond its capacity. As reported by Certainty, the magazine of the Hubbard Association of Scientologists International in London, “attendance was so tremendous that in addition to all standing room being occupied, a series of extension speakers had to be run to our premises in order that as few people as possible should be turned away or disappointed.”
Introduced as “my best friend and England’s best friend” by Scientologist George Wichelow—one of Britain’s great stage magicians and already renowned for his talks on Scientology delivered in London’s Hyde Park—L. Ron Hubbard soon had his audiences captivated with an education in basic Scientology.
The titles are now immortal: “The Goals of Dianetics and Scientology,” “Power of Choice and Self-determinism,” “How Good You Can Get” and “The Dynamics.” And though audiences may have been new to Scientology, Mr. Hubbard held nothing back in giving them the full breadth in application.
