Can anyone unravel the mystery of the missing roof from the old Tivoli Cinema in Middleton?
The roof of the historic cinema – which dates back to 1934 – seems to have gone missing.
South Leeds Life have made some enquiries – but local councillors are in the dark and apparently the police have not had a crime reported.
We’re told the council has apparently checked the building to ensure there is no danger to public but the owners of the building are not known at moment, so the council can’t contact them about it.
The cinema closed around 1960/61 (I was a Teenage Werewolf was the last film to be shown there) and it later reopened as a bingo hall.
Sadly The Tivoli’s been closed for some years now but is held in high regard by older Middleton residents. It’s a shame to see a part of our heritage open to the elements as it is now.
