Pavilion Picture Theatre
No one has favorited this theater yet
Opened as the Olympia Skating Rink on 20th August 1909. The building was almost entirely constructed of wood, with only the half-timber facade and a stone tower to the right, being of other materials. By April 1910, the Olympia Skating Rink was screening some films. In December 1911, it was converted into the Pavilion Picture Theatre with a capacity for 980 seats. It was soon enlarged to seat 1,452.
It went under several owners until 1922, when it was purchased by Mid-Yorkshire Entertainments. They operated the Pavilion Picture Theatre until 26th September 1950, when it was destroyed by fire. The final films were Richard Widmark in “Night and the City” and Jean Willes in “The Winner’s Circle”.
Unfortunately, none of the reference books I have give a street address for the Pavilion Picture Theatre.
