Cottage Road Cinema, Cottage Road, Leeds, LS6 4DD – Visit Now

Located in Headingley, Cottage Road Cinema is the oldest remaining cinema in continuous use in Leeds. Originally built as a garage in 1905, the building was converted into a cinema in 1912 by local newsreel cameraman Owen Brooks and his friend George Reginald ‘Reg’ Smith. Now over 100 years old, the cinema hosts “Classics at the Cottage” every six weeks in which audiences can watch classic film in a classic venue. An eclectic programme of mainstream, independent, arthouse and event cinema is in rotation the rest of the time.

Because of the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, we are unable to bring you our usual recommendations for things to do in Manchester and the North. Our thoughts at this time are with our readers and with the organisations and businesses who make the North of England a great place to live and visit. We hope you stay well and look forward to sharing more unmissable events and places with you later in the year.

Here’s our guide to supporting organisations in Manchester and the North.

Please note – many of the venues on our site will be closed and events either postponed or cancelled. Please check the venue website for details.
