Hi.

I found these images on a website devoted to Sheffield cinemas.

I worked in Pitsmoor in the mid-70's and travelled back to 'the Lake District' on the 75/76 bus. The banners/posters for Studio 7 were very explicit, 'Virgins doing this that or the other!' or somebody 'Confessing to this that or the other!'.

It looks like the picture with 5,6,7 has it shut down. With some kind of sale notice on it.

There's now a road passing through the site. So they now only show "road movies".

There's some information about the Wicker Picture House on this cinemaTreasures website.

Under a slightly new name Lysander is back after an absence of a year or more!

I visited the Wicker Cinema back in the late 1950s to see "Dunkirk" along with a French exchange student. A rather unfortunate choice of film for Pierre especially when the emphasis seemed to be how the French had let us down!
