The Palace Theatre was opened around 1914, and was a small cine-variety theatre, which had an 18 feet wide proscenium. It was operated by Albany Ward, as one of the cinemas in his small chain.

The Albany Ward Circuit was taken over by Provincial Cinematograph Theatres(PCT) chain in the early-1920’s. PCT were taken over by the Gaumont British Theatres chain in February 1929.

Gaumont British Theatres decided to build a new Gaumont Theatre in the town, using part of the Beaufort Hotel and Assembly Rooms site, and this was opened on 16th May 1938. The Palace Theatre was closed that same week, and was subsequently demolished.
