Sadly, many were lost during World War II and through subsequent building work but this book vividly brings to life, once again, the golden days of entertainment when they were affectionately known as Bughutches or Fleapits.Cinemas & Theatres of Portsmouth presents a lavishly illustrated selection of portraits of the work of some of Portsmouths most famous sons and daughters.

Stars such as Peter Sellers, Evie Green and Austin Melford are featured, as are visitors Harry Houdini, Sean Connery, Max Miller, Vesta Tilley, Gregory Peck, George Formby and Laurel & Hardy who all performed here. This book covers not only Portsmouth but also Cosham, Havant, Hayling, Fareham, Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent and is sure to be of interest to anyone interested not just in local history but also the rich and varied history of entertainment in general.
