I came here to watch the latest Star wars movie and fell in love with this place. The atmosphere was fantastic. The staff incredibly helpful. And even the snack bar had all my old favourites. Definitely coming back when I'm next in Canberra.

Big seats, small cinemas, a really nice vibe, you can take wine, beer etc in with you. And two rows have AWESOME leg room. The sound and picture is great. Prices are reasonable - get a frequent flyers card - you’ll be back.

The Palace Electric is a true modern classic, wonderful movies, creative food options, half price parking, it’s a perfect alternative to mainstream theatres Try the pink salmon : perfect!

This has a great atmosphere. The staff have always been friendly and helpful. It is really nice to be able to have a pre move drink in a pleasant surrounding and then be able to take one into a comfortable theatre.

Palace Electric Cinema in Canberra is a hidden gem. An eclectic establishment with 8 cinemas, a wine bar in the centre and Max Brenner coffee shop just outside. Set in the New Action precinct, the palace is a great place to watch a movie before...More
