Picture House

Viewing: Photo | Street View

In Lurgan, County Armagh, the Picture House is listed in the 1931 Kine Year Book as being operated by Mr J. Foster. By the 1940 edition this was listed as Foster’s Picture House, but it had reverted to Picture House in 1953. At that time the proprietor was Ernest Foster, perhaps John’s son. The seating had been increased to 700 from the 500 given in 1940. Ernest Foster was still operating the Picture House in 1966. It had closed by 1980. In March 2000, when my photographs were taken, the building was occupied by The Pillars, a toy shop. It is believed to be a listed building.
