Palace Centro

We are thrilled to share some news with youPalace Centro is undergoing an exciting renovation. From today (June 30) until November cinemas one & two are closed, however,  three & four and the bar will remain open. We will continue to show the movies that you love with only the occasional interruption, so please check online for session details and updates.

Once we're finished renovating you'll be able to enjoy: 

•    An even more luxurious cinema experience

•    Upgraded plush seating

•    Improved in-cinema sight lines - no matter where you sit, always have the best seat in the house

•    More movie variety with an increase of auditoria from four to seven

While we change in front of you, we want to thank you in advance for your patience. We will automatically extend your membership by five months and as a Movie Club member, we'll continue to keep you updated on our progress via our fortnightly eNews emails.
