“Expensive, small and not comfortable”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

A cinema use to be cheap (around a fiver) not here though and with only two screens you have little options.

“SAVED FROM CLOSURE AND NOW THRIVING”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Thank goodness the Palace Cinema was saved from closure about 20 years ago when so many others were lost. Recently refurbished and with two theatres, the Palace shows the very latest films, including 3D, concurrently with their release in London.

Going to the cinema is now popular again and this is a comfortable, friendly venue.

“Hard to beat!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

The cinema is very comfortable and the operating company seem to be able to secure a good range of films shortly after their general release. Recommended.

“Off to see the cinematograph”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

A good choice of films and only a 'stones throw' from the Mereside.
Comfortable and very convenient.
