Located in Atherton to the northwest of Manchester. The King’s Variety Picture Palace was located in the King’s Hall and opened on 14th February 1910. The first week’s programme consisted of “Western Justice”, “Foolshead Wrestling” and “The Honour of Thieves” supported by comedian Dan Idle. The hall held around 600 people and the cinema was run by Joseph Parkinson. Films are likely to have ended sometime around 1915 or 1916. The building, which was just a stone’s throw from the Gem Cinema, has been demolished.
