    This was a small cinema on Boaler Street, which is between the inner suburbs of Anfield and Kensington. Opened in May 1922 it had 630 seats, including a tiny balcony. The original name was The Graphic Cinema but it was renamed the Cosy in 1932. Despite much local competition it remained independently owned, surviving until January 4 1958.
    After closure it was used by a firm of meat packers and latterly as storage for a furniture shop. The unused parts have gently decayed and certainly want recording.
