The Londesborough Rooms was opened in 1871 as a multi-function hall. It was remodelled less than a year later and re-opened as the Londesborough Theatre, with seating provided for 1,000. Operated by Waddington & Sons, it was screening films as part of the programme in the early-1900’s. It was issued with a Cinematograph Licence in 1910, and was closed after the end of the summer season of 1913 to be enlarged to 2,000 seats to the plans of Leeds based architect James Robertson Watson. It re-opened 11th July 1914 with a film performance, but immediately went back to live theatre use. It became a full-time cinema in 1925.
In late-1929 the Londesborough Theatre was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system. It was closed as a cinema on 19th September 1959. The building was left unused and was demolished in the summer of 1960.
