The site of Palace Cinema, otherwise known as 'The Dronfield Palace'. There were two prices for the children's matinee, one penny and tuppence. The lower price was for the first four rows at the front known as the 'chicken run' where you sat on wooden forms. A pianist accompanied the silent films and played music appropriate to the film being screened. (1)
