Nice detail to the building. Balcony and roof line is attractive. Wonder what the interior was like?

In all probability . The Cinema would have a barrel ceiling. and a very small proscenium. My betting is that it closed due to not being able to afford to install Cinemascope. like the present day problems of installing Digital projection.

I remember the building well in its derelict condition as I was born and brought up in Woodhouse. According to “Sheffield Cinemas” in the “Images of Britain” series The Woodhouse Picture Palace was equipped for Cinemascope in the mid 50s and fitting the screen required structural alterations to the stage.Its first Cinemascope presentation was in July 1955 and it closed on 28th December 1957
