Through the medium of old photographs, programmes and advertisements, this book provides a fascinating look at the history of cinema-going in the city of Leeds and its suburbs over the last hundred years. From flea-pits to super cinemas, this volume provides a comprehensive history of cinemas in Leeds, including chapters on the technology behind the silver screen, the entrepreneurs and cinema chains which operated in the area and the brief period in the 1950s and '60s when the Odeon lured the era's brightest stars to Leeds. The images in this book, which are accompanied by detailed information and captions, will delight all those who have fond memories of visiting some of Leeds' picture houses, many of which disappeared long ago, as well as anyone with an interest in the architectural and social history of the city.
