Opened in 1911 as the Liscard Electric Palace in Seaview Road, Wallasey, proved to be one of the area’s finest and most popular venues for film entertainment.

The cinema continued to draw crowds right into the 1950s when, as with most UK cinemas, it eventually fell victim to the falling number of cinema-goers.

The Liscard Palace Cinema eventually closed in June of 1959. The building later became a supermarket (Lennons) and then a shoe shop (Shoemarket), which remains to this date.

The Liscard Palace Cinema was a short walk along Seaview Road from the Capitol, Wallasey’s ABC cinema.

No – it’s the former Apollo 6 (formerly Gaumont Palace theatre), also in Wallasey. It’s now a block of flats.

So sad…..

No!, Looking at other photos in the set and comparing them to interior photographs in the book ‘The Silver Screens of Wirrel’ by Clive Garner, it is the former Capitol Cinema/ABC Wallasey. The former Gaumont Palace/Apollo 6 never had a balcony, it was a stadium plan cinema.

The Gaumont Palace (Egremont) was built so low because of ancient “Rights to Light”.
