97 Holmfirth Picturedrome 14

    Newer Older

    Dating from 1913 the Holme Valley Theatre was a dual purpose cinema and theatre. It closed in 1967 to become a bingo hall but has remarkably staged a comeback, with the stalls area becoming - again - a cinema / music / comedy space. The former circle was partitioned off as a museum in 1997 when the cinema reopened. The exterior is seen here in 1997, shortly before opening, in the middle of getting a coat of paint!

      Compo would have loved to see a film here with Nora Batty, then pie and mushy peas over the road at Syds cafe..
