Back to the Futurist Cinema
Share the City support the campaign to ‘Save the Futurist Cinema’, Liverpool’s Edwardian ghost picture house, 100 years old but closed for the last 30. It was designed in 1912 by Leeds architects Chadwick and Watson, who built Bradford’s famous Alhambra Theatre two years later.
There’s an excellent blog and rapidly growing petition, which you can find here: Save the Futurist Cinema Petition
There’s a nice historic Futurist cinema pic on Colin Wilkinson’s peerless and ever expanding site: streetsofliverpool.co.uk
