Perth has a new cinema complex to add to the ever growing list of entertainment venues in the city. Palace Cinemas has opened in Raine Square and marks the return of cinema entertainment to the Perth CDB.
Located on the top level of the new Raine Square redevelopment, the luxury complex features nine traditional cinemas and; yet to open, four Palace Platinum boutique screens. The Platinum Screens are due to open on October 25 and will offer a private bar and lounge, and in-cinema wait service.
We visited with our grandchildren during the school holidays. The cinemas are quite small, with a plush fit out, giving them the feeling of a private cinema. The leather reclining seats are spacious and comfortable; although our seats in cinema 7 had a partition wall in front of them and when we reclined our seats we lost the bottom third of the screen. Also our youngest grandchild couldn’t see over the wall to see the screen at all when sat down, and when we asked for a booster seat we were told that they were unavailable as the cinema was new and they had not yet arrived- something I hope that will be addressed quickly. It seems that this may be a problem with only one of the cinemas, as friends have been to one of the other ones and didn’t experience this problem.
Entry to the cinema complex was quick and efficient as we had booked our tickets online. There are two lounges to choose from; the candy bar area or the champagne bar, plus if visiting in the evening, there is also a rooftop bar where you can get a good view over Yagan Square before your movie starts.
We waited in the champagne bar, which again is very plush and has a great range of wines and a selection of tasting boards and snacks to choose from.
Palace Cinemas also offer a Movie Club which offers the following benefits:
– Discounted tickets for you and a guest for all general admission sessions
– An ‘Admit 1’ complimentary pass when joining or renewing for one year*

The Movie club costs $17.50 to join for members 18 – 60 years or $14.50 if you are over the age of 60.

Overall I think the Palace Cinemas is a great addition to the CDB and somewhere I can see myself visiting with girlfriends for a fun girls night out.
