Liverpool Lighthouse has restored Gaumont Palace Cinema

Gaumont Palace Cinema interior Local charity Liverpool Lighthouse, which was established in 1998, has brought community cinema back to Anfield with the opening of the restored Gaumont Palace Cinema, 91 years after its birth. The cinema, also the charity’s base, aims to promote wellbeing for the local community, which has the highest levels of deprivation nationally at a time when people are already struggling with the cost of living crisis, bringing people together in positive shared experience and providing creative, cultural opportunities to promote connection and improved mental health and wellbeing.

The historical gem dates back to 1931 when it was opened and managed as an Art Deco cinema, a modern icon of its time. Liverpool Lighthouse’s restoration project, supported by Awards for All, LFC, Liverpool Mayoral Fund and Crowd Funding, involved installing a 10-metre Cine Pro electrical screen and cinema-quality AV system. The vintage feel was returned by bringing the remaining Art Deco features back to life including the historical box office and installing popcorn makers, candyfloss trollies and lighting up the venue outside with a retro ‘now showing’ sign.
