Description: Black and white photographic print centred on the Odeon cinema and St Paul's Church in West Street, Brighton. A board outside the cinema advertises the James Bond film 'Thunderball' and a last showing at 8:25pm. The film ran from 17 February 1966 for 3 weeks until 9 March (information provided by a former projectionist who worked at the cinema). The print has been annotated with a dashed line indicating the possible position of a new building or fascia across the sites of the Sports Stadium Brighton (S.S. Brighton) and Odeon cinema. The latter was refurbished in 1968 at a cost of £100,000.
