Palace Cinemas has announced that they will open a new upmarket cinema, Palace Central, in Central Park Mall in Sydney’s Chippendale.
With their distinct offering - stylish, sophisticated cinema experiences in elegant architectural spaces – Palace will open their new 14 screen complex on Level 3 of the centre in late 2017.
The cinema 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 an up-market cinema to the tenancy mix.
Glue Store Chairman Hilton Seskin, is one of those retailers and said he thought 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,” he said.
Showing the best of quality mainstream and new release films, Palace Cinemas will also bring its 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, OperaD’Italia and National Theatre, will also feature. With a new cinema recently confirmed for Double Bay, Palace Central will be the Australian, family-owned company’s 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 Palace Cinemas Executive Chairman Antonio Zeccola.
