Palladium Cinema

Located in Portstewart, County Londonderry. Opened as the Cinema prior to 1934, by 1937 it had been re-named Palladium Cinema. The Palladium Cinema is listed in the 1940 Kine Year Book with 700 seats (and, rather endearingly, “Matinee when wet”!). By the 1953 edition it has reduced to 410 seats. Still open in 1954, it had closed by 1963.

In September 2008, when my photograph was taken, the cinema building was occupied by an amusement arcade, Ocean Beach Amusements. The former auditorium must be behind the shops – note the small entrance to Ocean Beach Amusements between Roughans newsagents and the Harbour Cafe. Unfortunately, the entrance was closed when I visited.
