The Vale cinema was built in 1939 in an 'art-deco' style. Prior to this films had been screened in the Town Hall and the Rink cinema in
Battyeford which stood on the site now occupied by S.S. Motor Spares.
In its day the Vale would have been the most modern building in Easthorpe, if not in all of Mirfield. It served
Mirfield as a cinema until its final closure in 1994, by which time the building had fallen into a state of disrepair.
The building has recently been refurbished and now operates as the Isis Night
Scene or more commonly the locals call it the "Crisis".
