The Picture House Holbeck opened 5 January 1916 on a corner of the quaintly named Domestic Street in a suburb of Leeds. The architect was F.W. Rhodes of Upper Wortley, Leeds. It is an atractive building in red brick, dressed with stone. The entrance has an ornate carved stone surround.

By 1943 it was operated by Star Cinemas with a seating capacity reduced from the original 900 to 824. There were two changes weekly with prices at 6d to 1s 3d.

It closed in 1962 and became a bingo hall, however this too has now ceased. The foyer is used as a branch of a building society (bank). There is no indication what, if anything, the auditorium is used for.
