Located in Tibshelf, to the northeast of Alfreton, Derbyshire. The Tibshelf Picture Palace was opened in 1912. By 1934 it had been re-named Palace Cinema and had been equipped with an Imperial sound system. It was presenting pictures and variety. The proscenium was 28ft wide, the stage was 17ft deep and there were two dressing rooms. By 1944 it had been equipped with a British Thomson-Houston(BTH) sound system and was operated by Ollerton Pictures Ltd.

By 1948 it had been re-named Savoy Cinema and the operator was Stanley Clark. In the mid-1950’s it was equipped with CinemaScope and the screen was 21ft wide. In the early-1960’s it was closed and reopened twice due to falling attendances. It briefly reopened by Stanley Clark in 1962 but closed for good in 1963.

It has since been demolished and a Co-Op food store now operates from the site.
