The location on the map is not accurate. It was actually on Park Road. Having overlaid a 1934 OS 25-inch map on the Google satellite view: the site of Western is (to a very close approximation) on the north side of Park Road opposite Hawkshead Drive.

This was very common… You where lucky to get the print 30min before showing…. and Full of V cuts and dogy joins.. and Prayers had to be said at the side of the projectors so it would go through…

This was one of the first cinemas in Bradford to go over to showing Asian films. The projectionists were, however, English. The arrangement caused trouble one night when a feature had arrived with the reels wrongly number and got shown in the wrong order.
