Located in the west London district of Chiswick. The Palais Cinema was a relatively short lived cinema that opened in October 1909. In April 1912, it was taken over by W.S. Smith who operated the Talbot Cinema, Richmond, Surrey. It was fined on two occasions in 1914 for screening films on a Sunday, which was against its licence requirements. The Palais Cinema closed in 1916, requisitioned by the Government as a storage facility due the ongoing World War I. It opened again briefly in 1919 as the Palace of Entertainments.

It was taken over by F.W. Woolworth’s Penny Bazaar, and became a Woolworth’s store for many years, extending beyond the late-1940’s.
