Opened in December 1915, but because of World War I, there was some argument about whether or not a licence should be provided for this new purpose-built cinema when it was ready to open for Christmas 1915. At the hearing when the licence application was made, Alderman Hamilton was concerned about "providing establishments that are simply designed for enjoyment and recreation." He discribed the venture as "an injurious spending of money that was very much needed in other ways."
But the application went through, although ironically the first film was called "The Man Who Stayed At Home."
In 1937, the Ritz Cinema was built across the road from the Palladium. It was bought by the council in 1968 for 45,000 GB Pounds so that it could be demolished and made into a service road to the Guild Hall Complex
