Falcon Picture Palace

Located in the south inner city distict of Battersea near to Clapham Junction Railway Station. The Electroscope Palace opened on 23rd December 1908. It was operated by Fabbro & Co. electrical engineers. It was very popular, and closed on 20th June 1909 for rebuilding and enlargement, re-opening on 29th July 1909 as the Dreadnought Electroscope Palace with a seating capacity of 500.

In 1914 it was re-named Falcon Picture Palace and the seating capacity had been increased to 750 in 1915. It was closed in 1917, possibly due to World War I conditions. In the 1920’s, the building was taken over by the Wandsworth & South Western Star newspaper as their offices.

Since demolished, in 2009 an office block occupied by PCS trades unions stands on the site.
