Kelty Cinemas

Gothenburg Picture House
Main Street

1976 View
Built in 1910 as the Gothenburg Public Hall but was soon converted to showing films when it became the Gothenburg Picture House. A clock tower was added in 1925 as a gift to the people of Kelty. The interior had a barrel vaulted ceiling and a horseshoe shaped balcony.

The cinema closed in the 1960s and was later used as a raincoat factory until about 1975, when it was demolished to make way for council flats.
