At one time, Bingley had four cinemas: Gem Picture House, Hippodrome, Co-op Hall and the Myrtle cinema. The latter was the most recent and perhaps the best remembered. It was built in 1921 on the site of the ancient Hoyle Croft – a grass-covered square overlooked by the backs of houses in Chapel Lane and Main Street. The Myrtle closed its doors to the cinema-going public in the late 1960s. It’s now this pub.
