We are proud to offer an alternative to mainstream multiplex cinemas, by showcasing a mix of international and local art-house films, quality blockbusters, operas and special events, as well as our renowned film festivals. Our cinemas are fully licensed so you can take advantage of our curated wine list, which you can pair with our delicious cheese and antipasto platters. Let’s not forget about our barista-made coffee either. Experience sophisticated cinema at Palace Norton Street.
