The Woolton Picture House
The Woolton Picture House
The Woolton Picture House was a landmark and the last remaining independent cinema in Liverpool. Designed by the Architect Lionel A.G. Pritchard it first opened to the public on Boxing Day 1927 and closed on September 3rd 2006 following the untimely death of its patron David Wood, the grandson of Liverpool cinema pioneer John Frederick Wood, who bought the cinema in 1992. It was the only remaining single-screen cinema in the city and was popular with cinema enthusiasts because of its comfortable, armchair-like seating, old-fashioned atmosphere and the fact that films were shown with an interval halfway through, during which usherettes sold ice-cream.
In February 2007 it was announced that a group of local businessmen had bought the cinema, and it re-opened on 26th March of the same year.
