Theatre Royal in its early years as a cinema, 1920s
A 1920s view of the Theatre Royal in its early years as a cinema. The colonnade was removed, years later, and a conventional cantilevered canopy erected. In the pediment it is just possible to make out the painted “Royal”. Bradfordians always truncated the name to the Royal (or t'Royal; as in we went to t'Royal); hence the renaming in the 1960s conversion to a 70mm road-show venue.
