And it looks to be an all-action affair for the Palace Cinema as it raises the curtain on its four-screen movie theatre for the first time on Monday.

Patrick Duffy, who is behind the £1m renovation, is promising the best seats and the most up-to-date technology.

He said: “To be able to put something into a town that has not been there for decades and contributing to the social fabric of Gorleston by giving it something that virtually no town of its size has – a state-of-the-art-cinema – is wonderful.

“All the seating is the best standard seating I could get, with premium on top of that, and elite on top of that.

“The building has got limitations.

“Downstairs is completely disabled friendly, but unfortunately the upstairs cannot be because of the building.

“The downstairs screens are 3D and they are equipped to deal with conferences and meetings so people can use the large screens.

“I am very proud of what we have achieved.”
