The Electric Picture Palace

Southwold - All Year Round

The Electric Picture Palace

Opened by Michael Palin in 2002, the Electric Picture Palace is a small but perfectly formed 70-seat cinema. The award-winning building is owned and run by the Southwold Film Society, a charitable trust committed to the educational value of film. The primary aim is to recapture the experience of cinema-going in the mid-20th Century, acknowledging that the activity is not just about seeing a film but recognising also that the personnel, environment and programming have an equally important part to play in terms of a “good night out”. So you will find a commissionaire outside, usherettes, a front of house manager in a DJ, and a tiny Wurlitzer organ rising up mysteriously during the interval. The National Anthem is played at the end.
