BOSSES and tenants of Dalton Mills are looking forward to the iconic Keighley structure’s starring role in upcoming movie The Limehouse Golem.

Filmmakers spent three months at the mill complex in Dalton Lane in 2016 shooting the majority of the movie, which will be released on September 1.

Stars like Bill Nighy filmed scenes of Victorian life created in various locations inside and outside the 19th century site.

An entire floor of the atmospheric Genappe Mill was transformed into a music hall – complete with gold stage and ornate decorations – and a prison.

And on the cobbles between the historic mill buildings the production crew created a realistic Victorian street and a harbourside complete with cruise liner.

Dalton Mills tweeted their fevered anticipation after learning of the date when The Limehouse Golem would hit UK cinemas.

Marketing manager Laura Bacon said staff were really looking forward to the film coming out.

She said: “The filming was 18 months ago, so it will be good to see it as a whole.

“They were here for about three months – the majority of the film was at Dalton Mills. They also used somewhere in Manchester.

“There were two outdoor sets. They built a whole Victorian street, and a boat like a cruise liner.”

She said the filmmakers retained the dark, brooding atmosphere of the mill when they created the indoor film set. The Limehouse Golem is described as a British horror-thriller film, made by major studio Lionsgate, which adapts Peter Ackroyd’s 1994 murder mystery novel Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem.
