Does anyone know of any of the staff who worked at the ODEON, Cosham, when it closed in the 1970s. I am researching the lost Portsmouth film “Beginning at the Centre” (1948, director Laurie Upton). Laurie Upton wrote that a German TV company screened “Beginning at the Centre” at the ODEON. They used the film for a TV documentary. I am hoping the someone from the ODEON at the time can remember this screening, which had to be a very unique event. Possibly someone can remember any people from the German TV company, who must have made copies of the film. The film “Beginning at the Centre” is lost in its original version. I have spent 2 years searching for it as my mother was an actress in the film. I found a partial copy which can be seen here: http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/what-s-on/cinema/finding-the-lost-film-of-twyford-community-centre-1-6918713
