The Brinksway Pictorium was opened on 6th November 1913. It was designed by architects J.E. Wrathnell & Warren Blackshaw. It had an 18 feet wide proscenium, the stage was 9 feet deep and there was one dressing room. It was the last of Stockport’s cinemas to be equipped with sound equipment, which came on 7th January 1935 when a PTA sound system was installed, and was also re-named New Pictorium Cinema. It was re-named Brinksway Cinema around 1946.

The Brinksway Cinema was closed on 10th May 1958 with Burt Lancaster in “Gunfight at the O.K. Corral”. An advertisement announced it would be closed until August while it would be re-decorated, re-seated and CinemaScope installed. This never happened.

The building was converted into a warehouse, which operated until 1976. The building stood empty until January 1978 when it gutted by a fire. It was later demolished.
