The Palladium Cinema was opened on 23rd December 1915 with “The Second in Command”. The proscenium was 24 feet wide, and there was a medium size stage for variety acts. A ‘straight’ organ manufactured by Vowels of Bristol was installed in 1916. It had 20 stops and was opened by organist Tom Jenkins. The cinema also boasted a cafe for the convenience of its patrons.

In November 1928, the organ was enlarged to be a 25 stop instrument. The Palladium Cinema continued as a very popular cinema. CinemaScope was installed in the mid-1950’s, but the onslaught of TV caused the cinema to close its doors in 1960/61. It was demolished and a Somerfield supermarket was built on the site.
