But over the years there have been a number of beloved cinemas across the city from Cosham all the way to Southsea.
Here are pictures of 17 of the ones we have loved and lost over the years.
How many do you remember?
1. Apollo Cinema
Located in Albert Road, Southsea, this cinema went by many names over the years. Including Apollo and Essoldo. It closed down in the 1970s and was demolished in the 1980s.
2. ABC Cinema
Once located on Commercial Road, the ABC Cinema entertained moviegoers for decades but shut down at the turn of the millenium. It was opened as the Savoy in the 1930s.
