Picture House

Built as a shop and warehouse in 1908, it was converted into the Oxford Electric Theatre to the plans of architect John R. Wilkins, opening on 16th November 1910. Later re-named Picture House, it was closed around 1923.

It became a canteen for the workers at Cooper;s store and from 1939 to 1968 was a canteen for the staff of Oxfordshire County Council. It was demolished and the site is now part of the Westgate Centre.
