One Response to Past and Present – The Picture Palace

    I can remember it as a cinema, but I remember it better as a dance hall. I remember going there after the Wolverton Carnival on a Saturday Night, I was about 13 or 14 at the time and my friend and I went there. The old seats from the cinema were still there in the balcony! They used to have a live group there I think but I can’t remember who it was, but it was a long time ago about 1965! I think the cinema closed in 1961. I remember the Empire Cinema more as we used to go there alot, every Friday Night, it was in Church Street.
