For Sale May Rent

This is the Tower on Anlaby Road. It opened in 1914 as a cinema. In 1978 it closed and since then it has been a boxing venue, a roller disco and eventually as a night club and fun pub. It is currently for sale.
The Cinema Theatre Association wants someone to buy the place with a view to returning it to a cinema. All the original plaster work is still there. So with a bit of luck Hull might get another cinema.
You can read here about local memories of the place through the years.


  1. Beautiful details. I hope someone buys it and opens it up to the public again. Would love to see the interior.

  2. Wonderful extravagance for a cinema in 1914.
