Dancehouse

The Dancehouse is a dance centre at 10 Oxford Road, Manchester, England.

The building which now houses the Dancehouse Theatre, on Oxford Road, Manchester, was originally designed by Pendleton and Dickson for the property developer Emmanuel Nove, a Ukrainian who came to the city in the late 19th century. The building was built in 1929-30 originally containing two large meeting halls over a parade of shops. It is clad in cream faience with orange faience detailing. Nove's initials may be seen set on the central pediment. Before the interior of the halls was completed, they were converted into two cinemas (The Regal Twins) with fashionable 1930 Art Deco interiors, the world's first multiplex. These were converted, in 1972, to a five screen complex (Studios 1 to 5) by Star Group, as the first five-cinema complex in Britain. before closing in the 1980s. Star Group also established Studios 6-9 in Deansgate.
