The Electric Palace was owned by Messrs. Holden and Peel, it later became known as the Picture Palace and passed into the control of Fred Taylor in the 1920’s later run by Miss Violet Taylor. In the early 1930’s with the coming of sound films it was re-named Palladium. Sorry I can’t find a reference to Charles Simcock in my reference books.

Hi

I’ve been looking at a copy of my family tree – compiled by a distant relative several years ago. According to her, Charles Simcock “built the Palladium Cinema” (Her words – not mine). Is there a way to verify this?

The Palladium is listed as having 450 seats in 1937. By closure it had 350, possibly due to Cinemascope being installed which would reduce the seating capacity.
