Getting There


There have been some recent changes with the parking at Palace Electric Cinemas. We are no longer able to validate parking tickets from the Wilsons Parking underneath the cinema which has been implemented by the Nishi Building Owners and Wilsons Parking. Payment must now be made via the new touchscreen “Pay by Plate Machines” on Basement 1 or via the Wilson “epark” mobile phone app. Please note, this payment needs to be completed before your film, we advise to check the running time on the film.
