William Beresford Inglis

Died: 1967 (Keighley, UK)

William Beresford Inglis was a Scottish architect who studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1903 to 1905. His office was in Blythswood Square in Glasgow near his most important work, the Beresford Hotel on Sauchiehall Street (restored in 2003 as residential apartments). Inglis was a cinema specialist and owner of cinemas and hotels in Glasgow and the west of Scotland.

Inglis built four cinemas in Glasgow: the Toledo in Muirend, the Boulevard (later renamed Vogue) in Knightswood, the Hippodrome in Oatlands, and the Arcadia in Bridgeton.

Inglis died in 1967 in Keighley, Yorkshire. He was survived by his third wife. His first wife died on Arran during a family holiday, and his second wife divorced him and emigrated to New Zealand with the couple’s two daughters.
