The Elite Cinema opened in 1928 with a seating capacity of 500 and is situated in the North Yorkshire market town of Leyburn. It is a small independent cinema showing a varied programme of films from "Art House" to "Hollywood". There are also occasional theater and music events staged. There is a comfortable bar.
The auditorium seats 173 people on a single level and there is disabled access to the auditorium and the foyer from the street. There are 2 permanent wheelchair spaces and more can be made available with 24 hours notice.
Kept in a very good condition the Elite has a small stage, still used for live shows on occasions. The proscenium is 20 feet wide and the stage 12 feet deep. The Elite is also often used for filming when a ‘period’ cinema is required, the British TV series ‘Heartbeat’ has often filmed there.
The Elite Cinema was closed on 6th May 2007 when it screened its last film; Judi Dench in “Notes on a Scandal”.
However, it soon re-opened as the Picture House and is run by volunteers, who also choose the film programmes. Sadly closed in October 2008.
