Mourn the Himalaya Palace

The Himalaya Palace was the UK's biggest Bollywood Cinema, like a genuine piece of the Subcontinent in the heart of Southall. First constructed in 1912, as the 300 seat New Paragon Palace, its Chinese-style exterior dates from 1929.

The cinema began showing Bollywood films around the 1970s, and reopened as the Himalayan Palace in 2001, billing itself as the 'most luxurious three screen cinema in West London'.

However, it closed last year, and plans are apparently afoot to convert it into an indoor market. For more, click here.
