This is a striking grade II listed building. Above the first floor windows on the left (as you face the building) are the words Art Pictures and on the right Art Cafe. The word ART could once be seen, in red letters, high up on the central pediment. The three-storey building is the former Art Picture House, described by The Theatres Trust as ‘a fine example of an early 1920s cinema, exceptionally theatrical in its plan and decoration’. It was completed in 1923.
