In the Lancashire town of Atherton, north west of Manchester, the Gem Electric Palace (also known as the Gem Electraceum) opened on 29th July 1912. Apparently the interior was rather plush, and there were four private boxes.
Despite this, the cinema closed in 1927.
It is not known what happened to it in the meantime but, by the mid-1960’s, the building was derelict, before being taken over by a supermarket.
By 1996 the building was occupied by Sankey & Monk’s funeral parlour. More recently, it has been home to Atherton Dance Centre.
