A cutting in Huddersfield library said the architect was P Norman Brown and that films ceased on 16th Sept 1967. The first reopening as a cinema was in Nov 1998.

The cinema was built by the Bamforth company [who produced not only postcards but were the Hollywood of England during the early part of the 20th century – they used the cinema to show their own films which were sold all over the world]. The last time I was there they had a wonderful display of Bamforth cards. Terry Ladlow

Everytime me and the missus go to Holmfirth we always have a good look at this gem. It’s a real eye catcher!
