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.
