Located in Kingussie, Inverness-shire. The Victoria Hall was constructed in 1887 as a meeting hall. By 1937 it was operating as a cinema by the Kingussie Picture House Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of the Caledonian Associated Cinemas Ltd. chain headed by A.B. King. It had a 20ft wide proscenium and was equipped with a British Acoustic(BA) sound system.

By 1944 it had been renamed Picture House. The BA sound system was later replaced by a Western Electric(WE) sound system. The Picture House was still open in 1963, but had closed by 1966.

The building was badly damage by a fire in 1999. Repairs have been carried out and it now operates as the Badenoch Sports Centre.
