Palace Cinema

Located in Sale, Cheshire, now part of Greater Manchester. Originally Sale Public Hall, it was a wooden building dating from the 1880’s. Films were shown from 1909, and in 1910 it became the Public Hall Picture Palace. In 1912 it was re-named Palace Cinema.

An Imperial sound system was installed in 1929, and there had been some rebuilding work carried out. By 1937 it was operated by the H.D. Moorhouse Circuit and was equipped with a British Talking Pictures(BTP) sound system.

Around 1945 it was taken over by Warwick Cinemas (Timperley) Ltd. and in 1948 or 1949 the front of the cinema was rebuilt. The Palace Cinema was closed in 1954. It then had some use as a repertory theatre.

A huge fire destroyed the building on 16th February 1962.
