The Clifton Palace was bought by a local Blackpool partnership at the end of 1949 and re-fitted as the Tatler News Theatre after 11 weeks of refurbishment. It re-opened on Monday March 13th 1950 with 412 seats. (Source Kinematograph Weekly, March 16th 1950)

Fylde Cinemas, part of the Emery Circuit bought the Tatler in April 1953 from Arthur Wood (who had purchased it in November 1952). Fylde Cinemas introduced ‘Continental films’ out of season but continued to show newsreel programmes during the Summer. (Source: Kinematograph Weekly, Thursday 30 April 1953)
