There was a café called the Café Rendezvous. G J Mellor, in Cinemas of Bradford, gives the opening date as 2 April 1914. Not many days earlier, 18 March 1914, the Alhambra had opened to the public. The rear of the screen of the Picture House butts against the back wall of the Alhambra’s stage. The two structures would have been in construction at the same time. Old photos of the “Morley Street Waste” with a sign up declaring it to be “The site (for the) New Alhambra Variety Theatre” show the triangular patch of land bordered by Morley Street, on the left, Great Horton Road, on the right, and the municipal Queen’s/King’s Hall/baths complex to the south.
