Memory of Colne Road Tivoli
It is now just a patch of grass now with a few trees on it, next to the Bryeden House club. My dad who is now 90 yrs old was the manager/proprietor of the business back in the 1960s early 70s. He has an old black and white picture of it. I would also like to know the history before it was a cinema/bingo hall. I believe it was a theatre, as I remember playing as a child, backstage.

More Memories From Wayne
My dad Frederick Moore was the Manager/Proprieter back in the 60s/70s. It was a family run business including staff; my oloder brother Ainsley Moore was the manager and my mum worked on tickets and the kiosk. Other staff were Senga McGlauclan, and Jim Oliver. It was a cinema before I remember, and my dad used to rent it out at weekends to the asian community with their own asian films.

Childhood Memories From Wayne
Tivoli picture house as it was known then opened in 1912 with a proscenium of 30 foot and seating 1094 was designed by W.Heap. It closed in 1965 and was converted into bingo. At that time my dad (Fredrick Moore...now 93 year old) started managing the club and later becoming the proprietor after the death of the owner Mr J.Bradley (Bradley Circle)The tivoli theatre was demolished in 1973 with the widening of colne road... Me as a child used to play back stage behind the screen where at the right hand side doors from the main hall was a stairwell leading up to the original dressing rooms from back when it was a theatre...on the stage was a trap door for the magicians under the stage was very shallow, I could stand up but my dad had to bend over a little. There was a cinema screen on the stage behind the bingo caller Jim Oliver, on the balcony circle was two royal boxes and looking out to the pink wall decor with gold cherubs & scrolls...great childhood memories. (Wayne Moore 1961).
