Plaza Cinema, Assembly Rooms, 32 New Briggate (City Centre) (45 comments)
Black & White image1970. View showing the Plaza Cinema at 32 New Briggate. The building, designed by George Corson and James Robertson Watson of Leeds, opened as the Assembly Rooms Concert Hall in 1898. It became a cinema on Monday 15th April 1907 advertising "new century talking and singing pictures". The opening picture was a film showing the stage act of 'Little Tich', an English music hall comedian whose real name was Harry Relph. The picture house was able to seat an audience of 1,100 and admission charges were: front circle 2/- (10p) and 1/6d (7.5p), side circle and stalls 1/- (5p), area 6d (2.5p) and gallery 3d (1p). The name changed to the 'Plaza' on Monday 25th August 1958 until its closure in 1985. The Assembly Rooms are now (Nov. 2007) being restored as part of the major Grand Theatre refurbishments.
