Gorleston’s new cinema is finally ready for its premiere.
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.
