Brookville Picture House

Located on the corner of Holbrook Lane and Jackson Road. The Brookville Picture House was opened on 17th November 1928 with “Good Scout Buster” and “War Hawks”. Designed by architect J. Bass of Bedworth. Seating was provided in stalls and circle levels. The building also contained a refreshment room and a five-table billiard hall. In November 1930 the refreshment room and billiard hall were converted into a dance hall.

The Brookville Picture House was badly damaged in a German bombing raid during Easter 1941. The final film advertised was Jean Arthur in “My Two Husbands” on 12th April 1941. Only the front of the building remained standing.

The owners reduced the height of the auditorium walls to a single storey and it was converted into a factory for Harry Weston. After several other uses, it has been a Karpet Kingdom carpet shop since 1987.
