THIS 1980 image may jog a few memories for some of our readers.

Pictured is the Cosy Cinema, Wibsey, one of the many smaller picture houses across the district, providing entertainment for all ages, all within walking distance from one’s home.

The introduction of television sets into Britain's homes during the 50s had left many of the smaller picture houses redundant, only to be turned into bingo halls, clubs, or in this case, a supermarket.
