'The Palace Theatre is a building located at the northern end of High Street, Swansea, Wales, recognisable for its distinctive wedge shape.
Occupying a triangular site at the northern end of Swansea High Street, stands a tall three storey Baroque block, red brick building - a former Music Hall and Variety Theatre that has played host to the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Lillie Langtry and Marie Lloyd.
The Palace Theatre opened in 1888. It survived the blitz, became a temporary morgue, was the first venue in Wales to screen a silent movie, served as the setting of an Iris Gower trilogy, became a notorious gay night club in the early 80s and Dance venue in the 90's.
It is now sadly derelict and decaying. '
