Electric Palace Theatre

Situated just five minutes walk from Harwich Town railway station is one of the oldest purpose-built cinemas to survive. Take a step back in time as you walk through the ornamental frontage to its silent screen, with the original projection room.

Following the passing of the Cinematography Act in 1909 by Parliament, The Electric Palace was one of the earliest purpose made cinemas in the country. Situated in the basement is a former gas powered generator engine with a 7 foot fly wheel.

Once listed as a building of sociological interest it is now a Grade II listed building and it welcomes visitors through its doors as a community cinema showing films every weekend and special live and music events.
