Third cinema in Cosham

Edinburgh Road, Landport, Portsmouth, in the 1920s, maybe 1930s.' Picture: Robert James Collection

NOSTALGIA: Would you dare do this in this Portsmouth street today?

Have your say

My article on {|cinemas in Portsmouth on March 9} attracted the attention of Charles Frost of Clanfield.

I said that there were two cinemas in Cosham, but Charles remembers when there was a third before the war.

He tells me it was called the Waverley and was located next to the drive that led up to the stables behind the George & Dragon public house in the High Street.

The picture house was taken over by the fire brigade during the war and later became part of the Woolworth’s building.

I must admit I never knew of this cinema. Does anyone have a photograph in their collection?
