Electric Palace

35 South Street, Bridport.
Dorset DT6 3NY



In 1926 a local brewing family, J C & R H Palmer, took the courageous and enterprising step to build an opera house in Bridport.  A new venture in every way, but particularly because it was powered by electricity, a rare commodity for many at the time. Generating its own power in the engine room at the rear of the building, it enabled the people of Bridport to experience the wonder and glamour of the new age of cinema, as well as opera and other stage shows.  It opened on June 14th 1926 to a packed audience of over 500 people and was appropriately named The New Electric Palace. It has been at the heart of the community ever since.
