The search for an operator is underway to ‘bring the magic of the big screen’ back to a much-loved former cinema.
Plans are progressing to bring the former Prescot Picture Palace, a landmark cinema building in the centre of Prescot town, back to life.
The long-lost cinema, which first opened in 1912, was the town’s first ever picture house and following its closure in 1958, the premises was used as a warehouse, bingo hall and then a community church.
There is now an opportunity for an operator who is interested in running the cinema to create a sustainable business to serve Prescot and wider Knowsley communities.
Independent cinema specialists The Big Picture are leading the search to find a cinema operator to lease the Edwardian cinema, which Knowsley Council said has the potential to grow the town’s “burgeoning evening and leisure economy.”
