Previous Names: Picture Palace, Premier Picture Palace
The Picture Palace opened on 26th December 1909 in a purpose built 500-seat brick building near the corner of Russell Street and Chapel Lane. The Bioscope of 30th December 1909 attributed the project to The American Bioscope (Mr Walter H. Palliser)’.
From around 1913 to January 1915 it traded as the Premier Picture Palace, then from February as the Russell Street Picture House. It was later acquired by the operator of the Cosy Corner Picture House on Low Street. It was leased to new owners in 1922, who were unable to turn a profit. They returned the lease, but the venue closed around May 1924 due to infringement of licensing conditions.
By 2018 the building was used for housing.
