A legend closed in Portsmouth tonight. Will Smith’s “I Am Legend” was the last film screened. The next action will be demolition for yet more shops and flats. Closure was originally scheduled for 15th November 2007, but a couple of reprieves with a bumper Christmas program kept the landmark building open into this new year. With fond memories of superb 70mm presentations through the sixties, such as: “Lawrence of Arabia”, “Doctor Zhivago”, “The Sound of Music”, “Cleopatra”, “Those Magnificent Men …”, etc., it’s goodbye to a another piece of UK cinemas history.
