Hi, my father worked here in 1954, and recalls the cinema in stamshaw road being called ‘the forum’ or more effectionatley ‘ the bug hutch’ due to the fleas that lived there !!! If anyone is still around that worked at the empire palace please let me know :)

I don’t know if the stationary I have is for this theatre but I think it might be. Stationary has a 192 (blank space for last number of date). It says “Empire Cosy Cinema., Stamshaw Road, Portsmouth. Sole proprietess Mrs. E Parlett, Telephone 3967, Manager Wm. Pead”.
