FROM music hall artiste Vesta Tilley to Radio One's DJ Spoony.
That's the story of a building in the centre of Huddersfield now known as Livingstones.
It's 100 years today since it was opened as a place of entertainment.
Back then it was a theatre called the Hippodrome.
Vesta Tilley, a male impersonator who was one of the stage giants of her day, came to open it on Friday, July 21, 1905.
A huge crowd gathered for the eagerly-awaited first performance.
The Examiner of the time reported: "Mr Norman Robinson, the acting manager, and Police-constable Harrison had a hot time at one of the central doors endeavouring to prevent the people unduly crushing to get in."
The building had previously been the Armoury, opened in 1848 and one of the town's first examples of Italianate architecture.
It was the home for volunteer soldiers until St Paul's Drill Hall was opened in 1901.
It was that move which prompted the decision to convert it to a theatre - thus winning a place in the heart of generations of people who sat in the audience.
Conversion to a cinema came at the beginning of the 1930s.
In that guise it was known variously as the Essoldo, Cannon and, finally, Tudor.
One of the most dramatic moments in its history came in 1968 when a huge blaze left the property a charred and blackened ruin.
The Examiner reported how water from the hoses froze as 80 firemen battled to save the building.
Owners took the decision to rebuild and a cinema soldiered on until final closure in 1998.
Since then it's been the Rat and Parrot pub and now Livingstones nightclub.
And it was here that DJ Spoony played a set earlier this month where stars of yesteryear such as Fred Terry and Stainless Stephen once trod.
This evening it's the club's Honey night, featuring r 'n b and classic grooves.
