The architecturally striking Palace Westgarth, combines 1920’s classical features with art-deco and modernistic decorative styling, making for an unforgettable cinema trip. Palace Westgarth features five gorgeous auditoria and two stylish bars, including the newly installed courtyard bar. We are proud to offer an alternative to mainstream multiplex cinemas, by showcasing a mix of international and local art-house films, quality blockbusters, operas and special events, as well as our renowned film festivals. As an exciting new addition, we’re thrilled to present the Westgarth Outdoor Cinema!
The cinema is open between the hours of 10 AM – 10 PM, 7 days a week.
Westgarth Outdoor is committed to showing high-quality new release films in an idyllic urban setting. The courtyard offers a uniqe cinema atmosphere to relax and unwind with a bubbling Spritz or a premium beer or wine. We provide high definition headphones for each audience member, if you have your own pair feel free to bring them with you. You can simply plug them into our Fidelio receivers, which pick up your film’s soundtrack and transmit it through the headphones. The outdoor sessions light up the screen from dusk (between 8.30-9.00 PM), with the stars twinkling above. Sessions may be changed or cancelled without notification in the case of inclement weather. Outdoor patrons will be offered their choice of the following:
