    I have had my eye on this place for a good few years and has always been sealed as tight as a nuns drawers! then my wife rings me with the good news that our metal loving friends had been to visit.

    Not much to see but it was nice to finally get in.

    There isn't much history on this place apart from it was built on 9th September 1928, it was designed by Blackmore and Sykes (who also designed the Dorchester Theatre in Hull, the Ritz Theatre in Hull and Scala theatre in Rotherham), the first film shown was Lonesome ladies (also the name of an American B24 bomber which helped sink the Haruna Battleship and was designed by a British naval engineer!).

    The last film shown was Those magnificent men in their flying machines, Or How I Flew from London to Paris in 25 Hours 11 Minutes in 1967.

    The seating in the lower levels was removed during its transformation into a cinema, but the upper levels still have some of their original seating.

    Written above the Proscenium is, a picture is a poem without words.....then came talkie movies!

    The theatre was built by Greenwood and sons.

    The theatre had a Fitton and Hayley organ until the second world war and was then moved to the Cecil theatre and was subsequently destroyed during one of Hull's many bombings.

    Anyway onto the pics









    Thanks for looking (sorry about the watermark but i have had 2 images lifted recently from another site!!)
