Electric Palace

Located in the north London district of Highgate. The Electric Theatre opened in 1909. Seating was provided on one floor, there was no balcony. The fa├žade was dominated by a large arch which contained a half domed entrance. By 1934 it was operated by the Sidney Bacon Pictures Ltd. circuit.

It was taken over by Union Cinemas in 1935 and they in turn were taken over by Associated British Cinemas (ABC) in October 1937.

It was re-named the Palace Cinema from 1954 and closed on 12th April 1958 with Marlon Brando in “Sayanora”. It was demolished and the site has been re-developed for retail use.
