Built adjacent to the Theatre Royal (on its right hand side). The Picture House was opened on 26th December 1912 with a seating capacity for 600. By the 1930’s this had been increased to 873 with the installation of a balcony.

It was taken over by the Newcastle based Essoldo Cinemas chain in October 1957. The Picture House was closed in June 1967, as part of a compulsory purchase order from the Council, and was demolished, together with the Theatre Royal and adjacent properties for a town centre redevelopment.
