Bingley Hippodrome

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in Bingley, Yorkshire at the north end of Main Street, the Bingley Hippodrome was opened prior to 1934. It had a 26 feet wide proscenium and was equipped with Western Electric(WE) sound system. It was still open in 1947, but had closed by 1954.

The building was a Woolworth store for many years. The site is now a car park.

The Hippodrome is listed in the Kinematograph Year Book for 1914. It was owned by the Bingley Hippodrome Company. In the KYB for 1947 the capacity is 769 seats; and the same company was running it.

The Google maps pin point (above, right) is completely wrong (it’s pinned on Main Street in another community). The postcode BD16 2HZ is correct. Number 55 is a guess at the Main Street number. The site is now part of a car park next to estate agents at number 53. The Hippodrome was (probably) at the north end of the car park with the Water Works premises in the photo on the rest of the car park right next to the present estate agents.
