Information for this tour was contributed by Tim Reed.

The Leeds had Simplex Supers, RCA 9030 soundheads, and Strong Mogul lamps running 8mm positive and 7mm negative carbons. Up until the early 1960s, the Leeds had Peerless Magnarc lamps, and Peerless were installed once again in the early 1980s, and used until the theatre closed. All the projection equipment was removed when the Winchester Center for the Arts purchased the building and converted it into a live venue in 1989.
