A couple of vintage photos showing the interior of the Picture Playhouse whilst it was still operating. They are scanned images from the late 1980’s

Recent pictures of the interior can be viewed at


there was no electricity in the derelict and partially stripped out building so the quality is not great – but the unique balcony, the screen frame and some idea of the decor can be gained.

Following 111 objections the planning application to turn the Picture Playhouse into retail use was refused. The owner is to appeal against the decision.

The Picture Playhouse closed in 2003 and is very likely to be stripped out and converted into retail space. At present (October 2004) the stage, screen and front stalls seats have been removed, and a planning application is almost certain to approve the removal of the balcony and change of use to retail.
