These prints are part of our latest exhibition which accompanies the interactive heritage project 'Hiding In Plain sight'. The project, launched by The Hyde Park Picture House, allows you to rediscover the lost cinemas of Leeds - where they were situated, who designed them, when they opened their doors and, in most cases, when they closed them for the last time.
The images for the project have been designed by the talented Leeds-based illustrator Adam Allsuch Boardman. For the show 12 of the 70 images produced were chosen to be reproduced as A3 (29.7 x 42cm) art prints.
The Tivoli Cinema - 1934-1961 (demolished). Acre Road, Middelton.
This attractive 1,152 seat red brick cinema was designed by architect James Brodie, who also designed the Star, Corner House and Kingsway cinemas. In 1960 part of the building was being used for bingo, but films were still shown until 1961, after which it became a Walkers Bingo, rivals of the Mecca empire.
