In Devon, in the Torbay town of Brixham, it is believed the Electric Palace opened around 1914 by Arthur O. Ellis.
According to the 1931 Kinematograph Year Book, the Electric Palace, Sidmouth was then owned by Electric Theatre (Brixham) Ltd, with Arthur O. Ellis as managing director.
The 1940 edition listed 500 seats. By the 1953 edition this had reduced slightly to 488.
The Electric Theatre closed in 1966 with a screening of “The Rare Breed” starring James Stewart and Maureen O'Hara. By then, Mrs W. A. Hexter had been the manager for some thirty years.
The building was subsequently converted into a Somerfield supermarket.
