AUDITORIUM FROM STALLS
Well worth seeing a film here!
The Palace survived the London riots, (despite being in the heart of the first day rioting and looting) with apparently little more than a few broken windows, seen boarded up in these August 2011 views:–

FOYER & BOX OFFICE
“had a seating capacity of 2,000 in stalls and dress circle”
I am pretty sure that there was originally two balconies in the 1911 theatre – the descriptions specify two tiers of balcony above stalls and circle which I suspect were two separated areas of the same tier. It would also be unusual for a Matcham theatre of this period to have just a stalls and a single circle. Much, but not all, of the stage area was incorporated into the auditorium in the 1938 rebuild so the drop in capacity makes no sense given that the auditorium space was increased, unless it went from a 3 level to a 2 level theatre.
Two further photos can be seen on flickr, taken during demolition in June 2011

This is a very successful, beautifully maintained (following a recent restoration) art-house cinema which is hugely popular in the city. The staff are friendly, the two cinemas stylish and comfortable, with bars and cafe on-site. A little bit of cinema-heaven and well worth a visit if you are in Glasgow.
Demolition is well under-way in June 2011. The façade will be preserved.
Another recent PHOTO HERE
Click HERE for a photo of the Rex Cinema whilst it was still on-film in 1974. When it was constructed the natural slope of the land away from the street helped give the auditorium a raked floor.
Two photos taken during the 64th Cannes Film Festival in 2011. The main screen is the whole of the former stalls area whilst the two smaller cinemas appear to be in the former balcony. The cinema is very well appointed.
