Palace Cinema

Located in Sale, Cheshire, now part of Greater Manchester, on Ashton Lane opposite Park Road. Originally Sale Public Hall, it was a wooden building with an iron roof dating from 1877 when it opened as a roller skating rink. The architect for the conversion to Public Hall was James Henry Lynde. Films were shown from 1909, and in 1910 it became the Public Hall Picture Palace. In 1912 it was re-named Palace Cinema.

An Imperial sound system was installed in 1929, and there had been some rebuilding work carried out. By 1937 it was operated by the H.D. Moorhouse Circuit and was equipped with a British Talking Pictures(BTP) sound system.

In 1947 it was taken over by Warwick Cinemas (Timperley) Ltd. and in 1949 the front of the cinema was rebuilt. The Palace Cinema was closed in 1954. It then had some use as a repertory theatre.

A huge fire destroyed the building on 16th February 1962.
