An anachronism from another era, The Palace Cinema is unique.
We have 194 red velvet seats, bought once upon a time from the famous London ballet theatre Sadler’s Wells, to which you can take a cup of tea served in a proper china mug, and we play Pearl & Dean adverts and The National Anthem before every film. But we are also forward looking; we play a range of mainstream films as well as documentaries and arthouse films and we schedule an increasingly varied programme of live events including comedy nights, plays, talks and musical performances.
We pride ourselves on good customer service. At The Palace, all are warmly welcomed. We offer special screenings for parents & babies, for the deaf and hard of hearing, for people with autism or dementia and their carers and now and then for teenagers. We keep traditions alive and tend to the audiences of the future.
Our cosy downstairs bar stocks a range of local beers and spirits and in winter the fire is always lit. In the summer you can enjoy a local ice cream in our community garden space. We also have a gallery space with rotating exhibitions.
Our aim is to be a meeting point for culture and community in the countryside. We are an environmentally friendly cinema and a plastic free champion. We are more than just a cinema. We are The Palace.
