Cottage Road Cinema

Cottage Road Cinema 

The Cottage Road Cinema is the oldest cinema in Leeds and one of the oldest cinemas in the UK in that it has been continuously showing films since 1912. It came very near to closing in 2005 but was rescued at the 11th hour by Charles Morris. It became part of his Northern Morris Group which has saved other veteran cinemas in Skipton, Keighley, Ulverston, Elland and Windermere. The Cottage Road was originally called the Headingley Picture House and was converted from a garage and motorcycle assembly shop. It opened for business on Monday, July 29, 1912 when seats cost sixpence and reserved seats one shilling.
