Quinno _ left this review about The Picture House (JD Wetherspoon)

A beautiful picked coloured glass frontage. A breath-taking lead-in via the old ticket booth, as the walkway opens out into the old cinema area with magnificent high-ceilinged interior lovingly restored. Spoons have made the most of it here with tiered seating and the bar where the screen used to be, replete with heavy red drape curtain. Inevitably, there are large amounts of jumbo film posters from across the years on the walls. Four genuine guest ales amongst the two banks of pumps. I went for the Redpoint Disco Macaw which was in fine fettle and the best beer of the evening. The barman was a reverse cloth ear, who charged me for my order of a half but actually poured me a pint. Pretty busy at half 11 on a Thursday night and understandably so. A really good Spoons. 8.5

Bigger than it looks from outside. Fantastic interior and where I spent much of New Year's Eve. Staff were attentive despite the crowds and got the tables cleared up quickly.

Good to see Spoons making full use of these historic buildings. Once through the main doors you enter the front cinema lobby with the original kiosk. The main cinema area is obviously on different levels as you walk down to the main bar, running along the bottom. I was in awe of the stunning and ornate ceiling and well worth calling in just to have a look at that.
Nine handpumps with nothing particularly out of the ordinary, but did manage to spot Wolf Brewery Sirius, so went for that.
