NOTES: The Picture House opened in 1910 in a converted furniture store as one of a chain of cinemas run by the Provincial Cinematograph Theatres Company. Lavishly reconstructed with improved seating and furnishings it re-opened in 1925. It was renamed the Gaumont in 1947 and was closed and demolished in 1972, although part of the facade was retained as part of the Savoy Centre shopping development.
