Built in 1835 as a home for the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society, it was designed by architect George Wightwick. From 1889, performances of dramatic plays were allowed. In around 1919, it was converted into a cinema, known as the Polytechnic Picture Hall. This lasted into 1936, when it was taken over by the Union Cinemas chain and immediately closed. In 2000 it became the Falmouth Arts Centre and in 2006, it was renamed Poly Arts Centre.
Due to the economic climate, the Poly Arts Centre was closed in January 2010, but was re-opened later in the year.
