ABOUT THE VENUE
The Abbeydale Picture House is a former cinema, originally opened on the 20th of December 1920; the cinema had seating for 1,560 people, and also included a ballroom and a billiard hall. Originally, it was intended to be used as a fully-functioning theatre, however up until 1930, cine-variety instead played a major role at the Abbeydale, before the inevitable arrival of the “talkies” – talking films; at this time the stage was used purely to house the sound equipment. Fast-forward to the mid-1950s, and the cinema was purchased by the Star Cinema Group, which decorated the entire building and installed new projection and sound equipment, including a wide screen.
The cinema closed on the 5th of July 1975, and was subsequently used as an office furniture showroom until 1991. Since then, the restoration project has been undertaken by multiple groups, including The Friends of Abbeydale Picture House, and the current owner Phil Robins

Dancer, choreographer, singer, burlesque performer and occasional alternative model, Starla Bright has a varied appearance history, with a back catalogue of appearances on the catwalk, on the screen, on stage, and in a cage.
Starla is an accomplished burlesque artist who performs solo and as part of an unusual burlesque double-act called The Star Bazaar.
John is a burlesque, dance and circus performer based in Manchester and originally from Athens in Greece.
With an elegance and style that are unique to him, John has performed all over the UK and Europe to rave reviews.
Penny Lick is from Leeds and is a burlesque dancer by night, and a pinup by day!
Serving glitz, glamour, and vintage sex appeal, Penny will be serving up some true Hollywood glamour for this event.
