The Royal Hotel was built in the 1850’s with a Renaissance style exterior. An auditorium was built at the rear, using a part of the hotel’s facade as an entrance. Seating 1,036 in stalls and circle areas, the auditorium opened in 1930 as the Picture House. It has a 40 feet wide proscenium.
The Picture House was still operating in 1966, but by the 1970’s it had closed and was in use as a bingo club. This use continues today as a Gala Bingo Club.
On 11th October 1971, Historic Scotland designated the Picture House a Grade B Listed building (mainly for the Royal Hotel facade).
