The Piccadilly Cinema opened on 23rd October 1940. It was designed by the architectural firm Evans, Bruer & Hall of Adelaide in association with architect Guy Crick. It is listed in the Film Weekly Motion Picture Directory 1951-1952 edition as being operated by the Clifford Theatre Circuit with a seating capacity of 1,437.

Taken over by Greater Union Cinemas in the late-1960’s, it was re-named Forum Cinema. The single screen Forum Cinema was purchased by Wallis Theatre in 1983 and was subsequently converted into a triple screen cinema, with screen 1 in the former balcony, and screens 2 & 3 in the former orchestra level. It was re-named Piccadilly Cinemas. This is a Heritage listed building.
