Aqualung . left this review about The Picture House (JD Wetherspoon)

This is a recently opened JDW (Late 2014) and their web site reveals something of the history. It's a conversion from a charity shop and a Blockbuster Video. The charity shop was previously one called Motor World and the whole thing before that was a Fine Fare supermarket which in turn had been converted from the Picture House cinema.
Inside there's a high ceiling bar area at the front that narrows to the rear leading to a small patio. There is a much more elaborate looking roof patio that I didn't visit. It was quite busy on my early Thursday afternoon visit.
Of the twelve hand pumps four were unused leaving just Ruddles, Doom Bore, a cider, Caledonian Thunder Trail, Adnam's Broadside, Greyhawk Honeycomber, Elland Ichor and Naylor's Voodoo. I went for the Greyhawk beer (£2.19) which was in good nick.
It's not a bad place and the unusual roof patio may interest some.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Picture House (JD Wetherspoon)

Modern building (presumably on the site of a former cinema) with an unusual structural form. Single-storey High Street façade with a roof terrace above (accessed by a glass lift as well as stairs). High ceiling above the main bar space then lower again in the rear seating area. Plenty of historical displays about the town and surrounding district. Patio tables on the rear terrace. Ten of 12 hand pumps operational, with a reasonable selection of real ales.
