94 Todmorden Hippodrome 21

The unaltered 1908 auditorium of the Hippodrome Todmorden, now in the safe hands of an enthusiastic amateur operatic society, is a splendid example of a small town cine-variety theatre. Opened in 1908 as a theatre, by 1911 films had almost entirely taken over. Following closure the building was acquired, and has been steadily improved, by the amateurs who now use and rent out the Hippodrome.
