  • Going to the Movies

    The Alhambra Studio Theatre started as the Bradford Picture House in the early 1900s. This was converted into the Majestic ballroom in 1956 and then into a bingo hall between 1965 and 1970. It made an interesting return to films when under the Majestic name it became an Asian film centre. Eventually it was taken over by the Alhambra Theatre (pictured here courtesy of Ian Grundy). The Alhambra used the Studio Theatre to expand it's stage and workshop space.
