Nostalgic postcard view of the Lounge Cinema in North Lane in the 1930s. Queues are forming outside for a showing of 'Captain Blood' starring Errol Flynn and Olivia De Haviland which was released in 1935. A poster reads 'Coming soon - Mutiny on the Bounty'. This also dates the scene to 1935 and the film starred Charles Laughton, Clark Gable and Franchot Tone. The Lounge Cinema was designed by C.C. Chadwick and William Watson of 9 Albion Street Leeds. It was comprised of 782 seats (614 in the stalls and 168 in the circle) at a cost 3d (1p) and 6d (2.5p)and one shilling (5p). The Lounge opened on Monday 2nd October 1916 to a showing of 'Cynthia in the Wilderness' featuring Miss Eve Balfour, Mr. Ben Webster and Mr. Milton Rosner. This painting was produced as a postcard in 1997 when the Lounge was refurbished. Unfortunately it has now closed (January 2005). The two trams seen are travelling along North Lane towards the junction with Otley Road enroute to Leeds.
