Owner description: The Electric Palace cinema, Harwich, is one of the oldest purpose-built cinemas to survive complete with its silent screen, original projection room and ornamental frontage still intact. Other interesting features include an open plan entrance lobby complete with paybox, and a small stage. There is also a former gas powered generator engine with a 7 foot fly wheel situated in the basement. Details of the current film and concert programme are on the web site.

“Wow.. again”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

We have been to the Electric Palace, the countries oldest working cinema, many times. Each and every time I'm so impressed and promise myself to return soon. Try and grab a show in this special place, which has recently upgraded their sound, screen and projector facilities.
