Picture House
Bank Street

Building opened in 1843 as an Evangelical Union Church. When the congregation moved to St Modan’s Church in 1915 
the roof was remodelled and the original stone walls used as the basis for a new brick structure as a cinema c.1920.

This was apparently the first Falkirk cinema to show ‘The Jazz Singer’, in 1929.

Later enlarged to seat 1,100.
Used as Gala Bingo until recently, now a Wetherspoons bar.
An exterior shot of the auditorium can be found here, and a shot of the building when on bingo is here.
