Our Story

CENTO ZECCOLA Chairman Mr Antonio Zeccola with wife Karen and Children Antony (light Blue Suit heavier ), Stephanie (yellow Skirt), Benjamin (dark Blue Suit Thinner), and Elysia (SIve Top) at ASTOR Theatre.

 

Our first foray into cinema was a rented suburban town hall in the 1960’s, screening films to small but enthusiastic audiences.

By the mid to late 1970’s the Zeccola’s operated a number of suburban cinemas in Melbourne including ‘The Palace’ on Bourke St, from which the group derives its corporate identity as Palace.

Palace continued to flourish throughout the 1980’s and early 1990’s with the addition of a number of successful locations such as the Dendy Brighton, the Balwyn Cinema and The Academy Cinema in Paddington, NSW.

Today, the group comprises of 107 screens across 20 architecturally significant cinemas nationwide, each with a bespoke bar or café. Palace Cinemas provides an immersive experience into a rich diversity of emotions, cultures, and destinations, focussing on a mature and sophisticated premium cinema experience. A carefully curated program of high-quality new release films sits alongside their trademark collection of international film festivals, bringing local audiences the best of contemporary and classic cinema from Italy, Spain, France, Britain, Latin America, Germany, and Scandinavia.
