Located in Westhoughton, 4 miles southwest of Bolton, Lancashire. The Palace Cinema was a conversion of the Westhaughton Skating Rink which was built in 1908. In 1914 it was listed with a seating capacity for 1,000 with a 28 feet wide proscenium and a small stage. Equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system around 1930, it was taken over by the Marks Circuit Cinemas Ltd. and the seating capacity was reduced to 800. It had a billiard hall attached. By the 1950’s the seating capacity had been reduced to 656, and the Palace Cinema was closed in the late-1950’s.
