The Electric Palace theater was one of the earliest cinemas in England. After the invention of the movie camera by Thomas Edison in 1889, films quickly became popular entertainment. Movies ranged from short, simple narratives to clips of entertaining scenes from everyday life. Until the introduction of "talkies" in the late 1920s, early theaters hired musicians to play along with the silent films.
