The Picture Theatre opened in 1914 with 620 seats in stalls and circle levels. It has always been independently operated. It was re-furbished internally in 1935 and the name was changed to Palace Cinema.
In the early 1970’s it went over to part-time film and bingo use. The Palace Cinema closed on 29th November 1984. It was taken over by new owners in 1988 and the circle was extended forward to the proscenium opening. It re-opened with a bingo club operating in the former stalls and a 111 seat cinema in the former circle. Initially the cinema only opened four nights a week, but by 1990 it was operating seven nights a week. Renovations were carried out in late 1999 which included enhancing some of the original fittings and re-furbishing the auditorium.
In 2003 a second screen seating 60, was added in some unused space on the ground floor of the building.
