Palace Theatre

Located in Frome, Somerset. The Picture Palace was opened in an existing building which had been a Mechanics Hall. By 1914 it was operated by the Albany Ward Circuit. Around 1918 it was taken over by the Provincial Cinematograph Theatres(PCT) chain.

In 1929 it was equipped with a Cinephone sound system, and from February 1929 was operated by the Gaumont British Theatres chain. The sound system was later replaced by a British Acoustic(BA) sound system.

The Palace Theatre was closed on 4th February 1939 when the new Gaumont in Cork Street was opened. The Palace Theatre was converted into retail use, and was destroyed by a fire in 1961.
