Located in Stalybridge, Cheshire. The Empire Picture Palace was opened on 17th July 1913 with seating for 750. It soon was re-named Palace Cinema. The frontage has some Neo-Classical style touches with recessed windows above the main entrance being flanked by two Greek/Classical pillars. The auditorium was quite plain.
It became part of the H.D. Moorehouse Circuit, and they operated the Palace Cinema into the 1960’s. Taken over by an independent operator the Palace Cinema closed on 26th August 2003 with “American Pie-The Wedding”. It was converted into a nightclub in December 2004 and was closed in December 2012 due to its licence being revoked.
