The Piccadilly Cinema Centre was Perth’s “only surviving grand old Art Deco style cinema”. Originally the seating capacity was for 1,100 when the cinema opened as a single screen on 10th March 1938 with Claudette Colbert in “I Met Him in Paris” & Charles Ruggles in “Turn Off the Moon”.
It was converted into a triple screen around 1992. Screen 1 in the former circle had 423 seats, screens 2 & 3 in the former front orchestra stalls have 110 & 101 seats. The cinema screened new release films and the venue was part of the Regent Cinemas group. It was closed suddenly on 15th October 2013. The Piccadilly Cinema Centre was used by the Perth Fringe Festival in 2014, and was then stripped out. The foyer is now in retail use. Renovation work began in 2019 and was completed in 2022. Future use as a cinema was planned.
