The staff are lovely but there is an unavoidable smell of damp in the auditorium. It is also very cold inside and popcorn is ver expensive. The screen and 3D glasses are excellent quality but physical experience of the audience needs to be addressed. Tickets...More

After the renovation, this Palace is a welcome treat to the island. The chairs are comfy, they finally discovered cup holders and as long as you're in the front 5 rows, the smaller screen holds up quite nice.

Show all the latest films on release. The seats are really comfortable and with leg space. The only negative is the having to queue to get tickets behind others that are getting their tickets and sweets for a kids party! - very time consuming.
