  • The Hyde Park Picture House in Leeds

    The last gas-lit cinema in the world.

    And a lovely cinema it is, been there many times, the only place in Leeds where you can see foreign language films. Also it is in a residential area, the student bedsit land of Soft Cell fame. In the old days (i.e. last century) in Winter when it's blustery the gas lights would often flicker, dim and then brighten again, very effective if you're watching a spooky movie.
