Picture House

Originally opened on 26 May 1913 with 640 seats and the architect was Albert V. Gardner who designed the cinema exterior in an Art Nouveau style. He remodelled the interior to an Atmospheric style in 1935.

On the 15th November 1989, Historic Scotland designated the Picture House a Grade B Listed building. This was up-graded to Grade A Listed in June 2008. In 2019 it was restored and a second screen was added. Seating in the original main auditorium has been reduced to 193 (119 in the stalls and 74 in the balcony). The second screen has 54 seats.

The cinema closed in 2014 and remained so for 18 months until the £3.5 million Centenary Project eventually began in early 2016. It was expected to be finished in March 2017 but is now behind schedule. Highlights of the restoration are as follows:

Restoration of the historic auditorium with seating for 197; 119 in the stalls, 74 in the balcony

Restoration of the unique art nouveau frontage

Transformation of annexe to provide a new foyer/café

Creation of a multi-purpose exhibition space

Creation of a second state-of-the-art cinema auditorium in the rear courtyard with 54 seats
