Palace's James Street Cinema Is Relaunching with Three New Premium Screens and $10 Tickets
The site formerly known as Palace Centro is doing $10 platinum tickets and $5 glasses of wine for its first week of operation.
November 14, 2018
Two years after getting a makeover, changing its layout and adding three more screens, Palace Centro has undergone another revamp. In fact, it's no longer called Palace Centro. Now badged Palace James St, the 18-year-old cinema has built three more cinemas, bringing its New Farm total to ten. The new screens also mark the company's first premium offerings — Palace Platinum — in Brisbane.
With the projectors firing up on Friday, November 16, cinephiles can get put their feat up in reclining leather seats, which is what everyone that goes to Gold Class-style sessions wants. You can also tuck into dine-in meals and snacks. And, if your stomach is rumbling mid-movie, just press the call button to get your beverage — or popcorn — topped up.
Food and drink-wise, patrons can choose from bites that include $14 mini choc top flights (which feature five flavours), as well as cocktails, sparkling, wine and craft beers. Or, ordering in from along the street is an option. Local eateries such as Chow House and Jocelyn's Provisions will be serving up mini menus so that you can eat lunch or dinner while the film is rolling.
But this is the best bit. To mark the relaunch, Palace James St is offering $10 platinum tickets, which means that A Star Is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and The Old Man and the Gun can dance in front of your eyes until Thursday, November 22 for the same price as a regular session. Pretty good considering standard Platinum tickets cost $32 Monday to Wednesday and $42 all other days. Bottomless popcorn and $5 (not bottomless) glasses of prosecco will also be available across the week. Unsurprisingly, sessions are selling out quickly.
Find Palace James St at 39 James Street, Fortitude Valley, with Palace Platinum launching on Friday, November 16.
