FILM fans can inspect the newly-refurbished Palace Cinema in Douglas from today (Monday, September 19).
Both auditoriums have had new comfort-seats fitted, along with easy-clean carpet and vinyl. Overall capacity has been reduced to provide more space for each customer. Screen One has gone from 319 to 293 and Screen Two from 119 to 95. Lined up to welcome filmgoers back to the Palace are The Inbetweeners Movie in Screen One and Cowboys and Aliens in Screen Two. The cinema closed on September 5. In addition, the Broadway Cinema was closed while the Villa Marina was used for the Commonwealth Youth Games, leaving the island without a screen last week. A new-look website will go live to coincide with the reopening.
