Located in Richmond upon Thames, Surrey to the southwest of today’s Greater London. Originally built in 1843 as the Mechanics Instutute. The Palais was opened as a cinema in October 1909. It was located in the Dome building on The Quadrant. In 1913, it was known as the Clock Cinema No. 1 (the former Queen’s Hall had become Clock Cinema No. 2). By 1915, it was known as the Empire Cinema. It was closed by 1919.

The Empire Cinema re-opened by 1921, but closed around 1923. It was converted into shop use on the ground floor, with offices above. In 2008, the shop is occupied by Ted Baker mens clothing.
