Located in New Romney, Kent. Housed in an ancient building, the Pavilion Picture Palace was opened as a cinema in 1923.

I believe it was only a silent cinema, as is had closed by 1933. The building today is in use as an Assembly Rooms.

According to Martin Tapsell’s ‘Memories of Kent Cinemas’ the Pavilion was constructed in a former dance hall situated between Buckhurst House and the Ship Inn. No address is provided, but the Ship is at 83 High Street. Indeed, it was the proprietor of that inn, Harry Merritt, who started the Pavilion cinema. Later, it was run by D. Paine, son of Thomas Paine, the Lydd Cinema proprietor. A closure date for the Pavilion is not provided. In the book there is a photograph captioned as being of the Pavilion. However, it has since been revealed that this was not the Pavilion: it was a later Cinema that opened in the former Assembly Rooms on Church Approach.
