Sustainable Rebuild and Expansion Confirmed for Palace Byron Bay Cinema in 2016
Palace Cinemas have announced that Palace Byron Bay is closed from Wednesday January 27th for approximately a year, as the site undergoes the long-anticipated rebuilding. “While we’re saddened by the temporary closure of Palace Byron Bay, we look forward to offering our customers the broadest possible choice of films in a comfortable, stylish and sustainably built cinema”, said Benjamin Zeccola, Palace Cinemas’ CEO.
The cinema is expected to reopen in early 2017. The addition of six more auditoria, making a total of nine screens, will give patrons the opportunity to enjoy an even wider range of independent and mainstream films, as well as continuing the cinema’s alternate content program of theatre, opera, ballet, concerts and the ever popular international film festivals.
All existing Byron Bay cinema staff will be considered for roles once the cinema reopens and with the expansion comes the requirement for new positions, creating employment opportunities for the shire. The timetable for reopening will be shared with the community as soon as plans are available and Palace Cinemas look forward to offering our patrons a second-to-none entertainment and hospitality experience at the home of quality cinema in Byron Shire.
We understand that the upgrades may inconvenience you and we are dedicated to offering a premium cinematic experience we would love to offer you a twelve-month extension on your Movie Club membership. Please hold onto your current membership card as the 12 months will be electronically loaded onto your account from the date of closure.
During the closure your Movie Club Membership will still be active at all Palace Cinemas nationally.
Some of the exciting changes to look forward to:
Nine fantastic new auditoria
Broader choice of films
Enhanced in-cinema comfort with luxury seating
Premium Palace Bar and foyer to enrich hospitality experience
International film festivals, screening from the best of Italy, Spain, France, Britain, Germany and Scandinavia.
