The Picturedrome was opened on 27th May 1911. It was an attractive building which had an open dome supported by pillars which was centrally placed on top of the facade.

Independently operated, the Picturedrome was closed on 2nd February 1959 with Victor Mature in “Escort West” and Mamie Van Doren in “Guns, Girls and Gangsters”. It was demolished in 1963, and the land became a car park. A street named Picturedrome Way now cuts across the car park.

Hi There, I think you may have the date of opening incorrect. I have an opening ticket that originally belonged to my Nan & Grandad. The Invitaion ticket to the opening performance says the 27th May 1911 at 3 O'clock

Having studying the Pictures of the cinema I believe it was designed by Hickton and Farmer who designed a number of cinemas around the area
