Palace Cinema

I heard various legends about the hall when I worked at Bath in the late-1960’s. The main story being that had been converted from a 1816 built Methodist chapel which was enlarged in 1840, and for many years retained chapel seats in its front rows. The building was extended when it became a cinema in 1912, first known as the Variety Palace and operated by Albany Ward from 1916 as the Radstock Picture Palace. By late-1930 it was operated by the E. Truman Dicken Circuit. It had a 21 feet wide proscenium, and never converted to screening CinemaScope films. It was closed in 1956.

It has been in retail use as a carpet warehouse store since the 1970’s.
