Steve, from memory but verified by a couple of friends here are the picture houses. I have not included the ones in Liverpool city centre which numbered approx. eight.
From the Broadgreen area of Liverpool.
Regent: 5 minute walk away, Saturday Matinee, closed late sixties now a block of flats.
Curzon: practically opposite the Regent, closed early sixties, now a supermarket.
Dovecot: on the same road as the above but a mile along the road. closed sixties.
ABC Tuebrook: about a mile away, no more than mile and a half. Saturday Matinee(the minors of the ABC) closed early seventies now derelict.
Abbey: 5 to 10 minute bus ride away, a cinerama, closed in the seventies, part bingo hall, part supermarket.
Classic allerton: 10 minute bus ride away, large cinema closed to make way for a supermarket, with a studio cinema next door.
Woolton: 10+ minute bus ride away. one of the oldest in Liverpool, 1925, still going strong as one of the last independents.
These were all in the suburbs of Liverpool, there were others but out of reach of walking or the local bus route. If I was lucky then so were many others, but of course we lived in a city.
As you can see though there are only two left of those and the closure dates do fit the facts, however behind the facts is of course the simple pleasure of going to the cinema and enjoying yourself.
