The Theatre Royal in Hyde opened in November 1902. In 1914 a cinema screen was added. The final live show was Annie Get Your Gun in October 1974. A second cinema was built upon the stage, resulting in Royal One and Royal Two twin cinemas, losing the title of Theatre altogether.
In 1992 the Theatre Royal closed completely and was soon on the market for sale. Initially it failed to attract a buyer but the listing of the building prevented its demolition. The theatre is presently owned by an investment company. It is in need of extensive repair and restoration to return it to its former glory and enable the doors to open again.

This is my first post, i hope that comes up to the standard of other user's.There are other photos of this site to follow.

The theatre is situated in the middle of hyde manchester.
