Taken over by John Downs in the 1980s. It was his company Cosmo Leisure that converted it into a bar/nightclub opening in December 2004. A series of incidents led to its licence being revoked and it closed suddenly in December 2012.

Sadly, the Palace Cinema closed on 26th August 2003 screening the movie “American Pie-The Wedding”.

It opened on 17th July 1913 and had an original seating capacity of 750. It had operated continuously (apart from a short break when Cinemascope was installed) for just over 90 years.

Plans were being proposed to re-open it as a bar/nightclub.
