Opened on Whit Saturday 1909, ‘The Brackie’, as it affectionately known, with it’s Baroque style stage balcony, circle and curtained boxes which were never used – was converted from a former brewery. In it’s day it had one of the most distinctive roofs in the town – what would now be described as a sort of ‘Dutch Barn’ style.

There was a small room in the building where you could dance to gramophone records before going to the second house film show.

The Picturedrome was closed in 1958, and demolished in 1961. In all its years of operation, there was never a seating capacity given.
