The Hippodrome Featherstone in February 2005

Located in Featherstone, West Yorkshire, 4 miles south of Castleford. The Hippodrome Cinema was built for Fred Buxton and opened with film and variety entertainment on 23rd November 1912. It was sold in 1920 to T.C. Holden of Pontefract. In the mid-1960’s it began to operate as a bingo hall for three days a week. Its last film, “The Guns of Navarone”, was shown in the second week of September 1966. It is not known when bingo ceased but the premises were boarded up in February 2005 and demolished a few years later.
