One source says the Palladium closed on 10 June 1959 with “Rockets Galore” and “Wild Heritage”. You decide.

Picturedrome, Thanks for the information I cannot say that I remember the police station. I knew that the Stella was demolished, I saved a picture of it from a site which I can’t seem to find anymore, but at least I still have the photo. I remember when I was a projectionist in Pwllheli, sending a few features after our run on to the Palladium and thinking of all the cinemas in the country in those days that I was addressing them to a place I knew. These crossovers as was the term did not happen often as films almost always were sent back to the film depot.

Eric. The Seaforth Stella was demolished years ago. You might be interested to know that the police station next to the Palladium has been demolished, and the site redeveloped.

I’ve added a potted history to my photo, and made the other photo private, so here it is again:

How nice to see that the building is still standing, for some reason I was under the impression that it had been demolished years ago.

I remember going to the palladium as a child when staying with relatives in Seaforth, I cannot remember the films we saw but I do remember seeing “The Rainbow Jacket” at Seaforth’s other picturehouse the Stella Cinema starring Bill (Compo) Owen, this was a horse racing drama with Owen as a jockey.

It was almost certainly designed by Nagington & Shennan, being a twin of their Homer cinema.
Here’s a recent photo:
