Located in Royston, near Barnsley, Yorkshire at the corner of Midland Road and Victoria Road. The Palace Cinema was opened in 1914 (the date is in the stonework above the entrance). The proscenium was 11 feet wide. It was equipped with a British Thomson Houston(BTH) sound system in the early-1930’s.

In the mid-1950’s it was equipped with CinemScope and the proscenium was extended to 24 feet wide. The Palace Cinema was still open in 1966, but had closed by 1980.

It is now in use as Pockets snooker club.
