Theatre Royal Bradford being demolished
This demolition photo shows how the auditorium looked after it had been remodelled as a cinema in the 1920. It stayed like this until the 1960s when 70mm projection facilities were installed; and a curved screen built in front of the proscenium. As was the fashion then, everything was curtained over. The big screen gamble failed, as Leeds grabbed 70mm roadshow movies. Key was Leeds Majestic’s hold on The Sound of Music whilst the Royal (as it renamed itself) had to make do with less successful shows like My Fair Lady.
