Many happy memories of this place, my regular haunt as a teenage lad from 1990 until 2001 when I moved away from the Portsmouth area. It’s very sad to hear of the Odeon’s demise – inevitable after Gunwharf opened I suppose. Modern multiplexes may have their advantages (I’m as guilty as the next person of using them) but they have no soul or character – the Odeon North End had both of these in abundance.

BTW Some great pictures posted here of the Odeon in her better days!

As a kid growing up in the 1980s, this cinema set me on the path to a lifelong love of movies. This is the place where I saw the blockbuster films of the decade such as ET, Gremlins, Flight Of The Navigator, Stand By Me, Back To The Future, The Goonies, The Karate Kid and Batman to name but a few….

It’s nearly 20 years since I last saw a film there, but the memories are still very vivid and it will always remind me of great days as a youngster watching some excellent movies.
