HYDE PARK PICTURE HOUSE 100th ANNIVERSARY

That this House congratulates Hyde Park Picture House on celebrating its 100th anniversary; notes that the Grade II-listed site on Brudenell Road first opened on 7 November 1914 with the first film to be screened being Their Only Son; further notes that with 6,000 men from Leeds having enlisted to fight in the First World War, the Picture House played a valuable role in providing Leeds residents with news bulletins and footage of the war; strongly commends the Picture House for remaining a popular and much-loved local venue despite the building of local super-cinemas and the development of television, video, DVDs and the internet; further commends the commitment of Leeds City Council which stepped in to save the Picture House from closure in 1989; further commends the Trustees of Leeds Grand Theatre and Opera House Limited for their determination to preserve and ensure the future security of the Picture House; and wishes the Hyde Park Picture House many more years of success.
