Sydney, get ready for the new Palace Central!

We are thrilled to announce that we will be opening a new cinema, Palace Central, in the multi-award winning development, Central Park Mall, in Sydney’s Chippendale.

The new 14 screen complex on Level 3 of the centre will open in late 2017 and will also uphold the building’s ‘green’ ethos, utilising technology which will use recycled water to heat and cool the auditoria, negating the need for gas and reducing their carbon footprint.

Situated across the road from UTS on Broadway, arguably one of the best-connected addresses in Sydney, the five-level vertical mall boasts 68 external and internal tenancies across 13,000m2. Replete with a sun-drenched emporium, future-forward sustainable architecture, free Wi-Fi and extended trading hours; Central Park Mall is a vibrant mix of contemporary cafes, shops, restaurants and artistic spaces and the centre’s existing retailers welcome the addition of our up-market cinema style to the tenancy mix.

Glue Store Chairman, Hilton Seskin, is one of those retailers and commented “It’s a great addition to the centre. We are lucky enough to have the benefit of extended trading hours here every night until 8 pm, so a cinema is a great compliment to this. It’s going to encourage more people to come in at those later hours after work which is also great for retail.”

We’ll be showing the best of quality mainstream and new release films and will also bring our trademark and much-loved collection of international film festivals to the precinct, delivering the best of contemporary cinema from Italy, Spain, and France, among other countries. A carefully curated program of stage-to-screen content from the world’s foremost dance and theatre companies, including Covent Garden, La Scala, Bolshoi Ballet, Opera D’Italia and National Theatre, will also feature.

With another new Palace cinema recently confirmed for Double Bay, Palace Central will be our fifth location in Sydney.

“We have a passion for developing new opportunities within the cinema industry which allow us to engage with local communities throughout Australia.” said Antonio Zeccola, Palace Cinemas’ Executive Chairman.

Stay tuned!
