The Picture House (Caley) is in good condition and functions as a 1,500 capacity live music venue. This is mainly standing, but the front five rows of the balcony are padded bench seating. Photos from October 2011 below.

Shortly after opening as a live music venue in September 2008, it was renamed the HMV Picture House, following a new sponsorship deal.

The Caley re-opens this month as a live music venue and club called The Picture House, run by the MAMA Group. The gaudy pink interior scheme and intrusive bars appear to have been removed for this more sympathetic use.

The Caley Picture House can be seen in this vintage 1959 photograph; It’s the dark building jutting out, mid-distance on the right, just beyond the bus:

This link claims that the building was used as a public house and nightclub. The date given at that link is March 2003, so the building might be empty today.
