From jail-house to cinema-house, featuring luxurious fully reclining chairs (complete with individual footrests) in all 15-auditoriums, Dolby Atmos surround sound, state-of-the-art digital projection, and a fully-licensed menu (yes, you can take your drink in!) Pentridge Cinema offers Melbourne the absolute best cinema-going experience with Hollywood’s finest films and exclusive events.

Palace Cinemas is proud to be a part of this vibrant and one-of-a-kind urban village that breathes new life into its historic location; offering bespoke lively restaurants, bars, cafés and boutique fashion retailers you won’t find anywhere else.  All of this within the growing heart of Coburg, with easy underground parking and direct public transport access.
