The Picture House in Randalstown, County Antrim was opened in 1935. It is not listed in the 1937 Kinematograph Year Book, but is in the 1940 edition. It was operated by Supreme Cinemas Ltd. By the 1953 edition it had become the Cinema, still operated by Supreme Cinemas. It was closed in 1962 but was re-opened under new management in 1963 and operated until 1969. The building was later destroyed by fire.

Address may not be correct as 40 New Street is listed as a Spar supermarket, the cinema/church is further along the road.
