Previously operated by: Gaumont-British-Picture Corp., Ltd.
Located in the Wavertree/Sefton Park district of Liverpool. The building was originally a horse stables. It was converted into a cinema, opening on 11th January 1911 as the Picturedrome. All seating was on a single level.
In March 1928 it was taken over by Denman Picture Houses Ltd, part of the Gaumont British Theatres chain. It did not come up to their standards, and was closed as a silent cinema in 1929.
The building was converted into a penny bazaar, and for many years operated as a hardware DIY store known as Handymans Supermarket. A horse’s head is still in place on the facade of the building, a relic from its original use. By 2018 it was in use as a micro-brewery & bar.
