Originally a Methodist Chapel, the building was converted into the Palace Cinema, which opened on 16th October 1911 with "The Leading Lady". It was operated by George Barber, and initially seating was provided for 514.

It was taken over by the County Cinemas chain in 1927. It was re-named Majestic Cinema, then in 1929, renovations were undertaken and it was re-named King George’s Cinema.

It was re-named County Cinema in 1932, and in 1941, County Cinemas were taken over by the Oscar Deutsch chain of Odeon Theatres Ltd.

Closed by the Circuits Management Association on 29th June 1957 with James Robertson Justice and Dirk Bogarde in "Doctor At Large". The building stood empty and unused until it was demolished in around 1972. A housing development named Durrans Court has been built on an expanded site.
