The Andrews' Picture House was opened on 1st August (Bank Holiday Monday), 1910. It was purpose built as a cinema, designed by local Plymouth architects Thornley, Rooke & Barron. The auditorium had a high, deeply curved barrel vaulted ceiling, and seating was provided in stalls and circle levels. It was equipped with a straight organ. Another amenity was the provision of a tea room.
In the mid-1920’s it was taken over by the Provincial Cinematograph Theatres(PCT) circuit, and in February 1929 they were taken over by the Gaumont British Theatres chain. They closed the Andrews' Picture House in October 1930, and it was immediately demolished to built their new 2,223-seat Gaumont Palace, which opened on 16th November 1931.
