New Victoria Theatre, Bradford

One from November 2019 recently released for public consumption.


The New Victoria Theatre in Princes Way, Bradford was built by William Illingworth on the site of William Whittaker's Brewery which closed in 1928. The Theatre was built as a vast ciné-variety Theatre with 3,318 seats on three levels, Stalls, Circle and Balcony, and opened on Monday the 22nd of September 1930.

In September 1950 it changed its name to Gaumont and underwent significant refurbishment in 1954.

It became the Odeon Cinema in March 1969 until its closure in June 2000.

The building is currently undergoing redevelopment.
