Located in Wigan, Lancashire. Originally built as a roller skating rink, it was converted into the Palace Picture Theatre in 1912. By 1929 it was operated by the H.D. Moorhouse Circuit, and by 1931 they had installed a British Talking Pictures(BTP) sound system.

The Palace Picture Theatre was taken over by Magee-Marshall & Company around 1940. In 1950 a British Acoustic(BA) sound system was installed. CinemaScope was installed in 1956, but the cinema closed in the late-1950’s.
