ABC Cinema, Vicar Lane (City Centre) (22 comments)
Black & White image1970. View showing the ABC Cinema on Vicar Lane. The Cinema opened on 19th November 1934 as the Ritz Cinema. The name changed to the ABC on 23rd May 1959. The photograph dates from when the ABC was re-opened as a twin cinema, on 5th April 1970, with showings of 'Paint Your Wagon' and 'Spring and Port Wine'. It then became the first triple cinema in Leeds when the former stalls area of ABC 2 was divided. The triple opened on Sunday 17th March 1974 with showings of 'The Sting', 'Paper Moon' and 'Walking Tall'. The cinema changed its name to the Cannon in March 1987, then to M.G.M. in 1991 with a reversal to the ABC in 1993. The final closure of the cinema was reported in the Evening Post as 17th February 2000, although, it said, closure had been 'on the cards' since Christmas.
