Architects: Charles Mitchell
The New Palace Picture House opened in 1929 with a programme that included the ‘talkie’ short “Her New Chauffeur”. The facade is in a typical Edinburgh stone. It was built for a Mr P.S.L. Lucas. By 1937 and for many years it was leased to J. Penn.
Always independently operated, it closed when the lease ran out on 22nd September 1956 with Charles Laughton in “Captain Kidd” and Leon Ames in “East Side Kids”. It was converted into a retail food store and later in the mid-1960’s McGoo’s club. Since the nightclub closed it has been converted into retail use as a clothing store.
On 29th March 1995, Historic Scotland designated the New Palace Picture House a Grade C(s) Listed building.
