the atherley was my job from trany to fully skild projectionist untill it closed. i do beleve it was sead that the new managers of the bingo and sochol club wer not alowd to take the only cinema away from shirly , and as long as it staid thay could then have ther bingo club. but like most things today as long as thay got wat thay wanted then out went the cinema sadly for me , and cinama goers . but it was the best job i ever had ,im glad it was part of me .

Notes from “100 years of Cinema in Southampton” by Patrick Hayward;
The Atherly Cinema opened in a quiet way with 650 seats. With success came a 1919 extension which increased them to 1,130.
