You can read a proper report here (http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=52810&highlight=shipley+cinema)

The Shipley Picture House Company (later to become Glenroyal Cinema Company) built this showpiece super-cinema, the 1200-seater Glenroyal in a prime position in Briggate and only a few yards away from the old and now defunct Shipley Picture House. It was the idea of Shack Hyde as this was to become the flagship of his A.S Hyde Circuit and built at a cost of 25,000 GBP with over seventy percent of the work done by local labour and materials supplied by local tradesmen.

During late 2003, the prominent position and the height of the old Glenroyal building had not escaped the attention of mobile phone and communication companies who have just added a tubular steel safety railing on the roof above the former projection room and large antennae masts have appeared.
