This picture shows Yvette Pearcey pondering the remains of the Regent/Gaumont cinema at North End, Portsmouth.
The 2,000-seat picture house in London Road was demolished in April 1974 and a Safeway supermarket built on the site.
The picture was taken by her late husband Brian as was the one in Chichester Road, North End, captured in June 1987.
The Regent cinema opened on March 31, 1923, with Jackie Coogan in Oliver Twist and there was a house orchestra to accompany the films.
In October 1929 an organ was installed.
In February 1931 the cinema was taken over by Gaumont British Theatres, but it was not renamed Gaumont until March 1953.
It was closed by the Rank Organisation in 1973.
