I started here age 16, as a trainee projectionist in August 1967, it was an amazing place to work. The hours were long, but I loved every minute of it, well most of it, the chief projectionist could be really mean after he had a couple of quarts of Old English cider. I was there when it closed and it was one of the saddest days of my life when we had to gut the inside and put everything on a lorry to be taken away. I did have many souvenirs, sadly long since dissapeared.

The Palace Cinema was equipped with a Compton 2Manual/5Rank theatre organ which was opened by George F. Somes in 1926.
