It’s been a landmark in Middleton for decades, but the Tivoli cinema is now being demolished to make way for private housing.
The cinema opened in 1934 but closed in 1960, becoming the first cinema in Leeds to convert to a bingo hall. It finally closed its doors in 2009 and has been empty since, the roof was removed in 2012.
South Leeds Life understands that the demolition is to allow the redevelopment of the site to proceed. Planning permission exists for the building of eight semi-detached houses and four flats, all for private sale.
