The Bioscope of Thursday 9 April 1914 reported that the Bradford Picture House, owned by the Bradford Cinematograph Company, was opened by the Lord Mayor & Lady Mayoress on the previous Thursday, i.e. 2 April 1914. It had a Chinese-themed café called the Café Rendezvous. Not many days earlier, 18 March 1914, the Alhambra had opened to the public. The screen of the Picture House was against the back wall of the Alhambra’s stage. The two structures would have been in construction at the same time. Old photos of the “Morley Street Waste” with a sign up declaring it to be “The site (for the) New Alhambra Variety Theatre” show the triangular patch of land bordered by Morley Street, on the left, Great Horton Road, on the right, and the municipal Windsor Halls complex to the south.
