This section is where you can submit memories of the good old days. I have converted the original page into a database-driven page and have included a feature that will group entries with a particular theme together.

The Palace Cinema, which stood on Railway Road, was officially opened on 12th of December 1912 by Councillor Cross. The feature film played to a full house, and piano music was played for dramatic effects. The takings for that day were donated to the Urmston Cottage Hospital. The commissionaire later married the usherette. Sadly, the projectionist was killed in WW1. Post-war the pianist became manager at the Empress Cinema. I have wistful memories of attending the kids matinees at the Palace in 1942.
Thanks to Bob Potts!
