Long before it was the bingo hall it was the cinema or Woodlesford Picture-house. As kids in the 50's we used to go to a Saturday Matinee for 6d. Does anyone else remember?

I should have mentioned that the building was The Ritz Cenema in the days of the Saturday Matinee. Who remembers the song? 'Here we are again, Happy as can be, All good friends and jolly good company. Never mind the weather Never mind the rain, This is our fun day Whoops we go again La di da di da La di da di de All godd friends and jolly good company' Then we preceded to fire lollipop sticks around us (unless Auntie Susie from the ticket kiosk was watching of course).

I remember going to see the film "Kes" there around 1970. I don't know when it changed to the bingo place, but I also remember playing snooker there at some point - maybe around 1992-3 ?

Growing up in Oulton nearby to Woodlesford, or otherwise fondly known as Woody, the old cinema/stroke Bingo hall was also a snooker hall in the late 80s to late 90s.

I can remember going to the Saturday matinées with my 2 sisters in the mid sixties. I loved the usherettes who used to shout "shurrup" as they shone their torch at the noisy offenders. Magical memories.

During 1953 students from Woodlesford Primary School were taken to Woodlesford cinema to watch a film of the Queen's Coronation. Possibly students from other schools were also there.
