Details

Opened as Ealing Theatre, became the Hippodrome. Closed as a cinema (Palladium) in 1958 and demolished. An interesting interior which retained the appearance of a theatre to the end. Two balconies with circular-curved fronts linked on either side of the proscenium to narrow boxes whose slender columns carried an elliptically-arched sounding board. Square proscenium with enriched architrave and tympanum over. Circular ceiling divided into eight panels. The ornament throughout had a rather Adamish flavour.
