‘The Royal Electric Theatre’ on New Road opened in 1913 on what is now the Memorial Gardens. It ceased as a cinema June 24th 1921 when the present day Picture House opened.
The following text is taken from Looking Back at Hebden Bridge by Frank Horsfall & Terry Wyke
A travelling theatre, Blake’s Alhambra, provided the people of Hebden Bridge with one of their first opportunities to experience the magic of moving pictures. It was in 1912 that jack Shaw, a Manchester man, opened the town’s first cinema on Thistle Holme, on a site now occupied by the Memorial Gardens. Officially called The Royal Electric Theatre and hippodrome, it was, understandably, more commonly referred to as the ‘Wood Hut’. Once inside, the patrons of the ‘Wood Hut’ could relax in relative comfort, safe in the knowledge that “in the interests of public health, the hall is regularly disinfected with Jeyes’Fluid” and enjoy films such as ‘Father’ which was advertised as “truly the limit in fine pictures. Over 3,000 feet long”. The Royal Electric Theatre closed down as a cinema when the present Picture House on New Road was opened in 1921.
