A conversion of the former Temperence Hall in 1912 provided Bridlington with the Picturehouse Cinema and the facade (pictured) dates from around this time. It was quickly renamed the Picturedrome (by 1913). It led a troubled life as it was nowhere near the center of town and often seems to have closed.
There were 400 seats in stalls and small balcony although later on 497 were listed in Cine Yearbooks.
