The property is on the market for £650,000 and dates back to 1937 when it opened as a cinema, the first in Brighouse.

It closed in 1963 and re-opened as a bingo hall in 1965 before being bought in 1981, when it was refurbished and converted to a dance hall.

Over the years it has popped up on our TV screens from time to time including during A Touch of Frost in 2003 and in an episode of Heartbeat back in 1992.
