The Picturedrome in Chestergate, Macclesfield, Cheshire, opened on 21st October 1911 and was located at the side of the Theatre Royal (now demolished and became the Picturedrome car-park), and was the first purpose built cinema in the town. Seating was provided for 700, all on one floor. It was taken over by the owners of the Majestic Cinema in the early-1930’s and by the 1950’s was playing second-run films to the Majestic Cinema.
The Picturedrome was converted into a bingo club in the 1970’s and closed as the Cascade Bingo Club in Spring 1999.
It was converted into offices in 2000. However much of the building survives intact including the bands of plasterwork on the barrel vaulted ceiling (velux windows have been inserted in the panels between the scrollwork). On 29th October 2019 it opened as a combined retail, bar & resurant complex.
