I think you are right!
I started at Foundry Road school in 1960 and used to walk past there every day.
I'm sure it was there all through my infants and junior years. I don't remember it as a picture house... just as a building where we used play on the steps.

All The Best

I think you are both right
I may be wrong but I think they mean't it was closed in 59 and later demolished ? or maybe not ? PS its an original photo taken by Keith Whelan and there may be more on the article it looks like part of it was cropped ?
