Electric Picture Palace, Southwold

Electric Picture Palace, Southwold

The facade of the Electric Picture Palace, designed by John Bennett to reflect the styles of 1912, is a far cry from the cart shed and hayloft that previously stood here until 2000. The first Southwold Cinema opened in 1912 in York Road - a very short distance away - and was also called The Electric Picture Palace. The Southwold Film Society have been enthusiastically showing films since 1998.

Tours of the Electric Picture Palace:Geoffrey Crabb's Amazing Tours last about an hour and are usually conducted on Sundays at 2:30pm whilst the cinema is closed between Film Sessions. Cost is £5 adult and £2 child. Check with the Box Office for details of these and of Special Tours if under 5 people.

The Box Office is open Tuesdays 10:30am - 12noon throughout each EPP film season.
