If you’ve desperately missed the movies and are craving a culture hit, Palace Home Cinema will hit that sweet spot of convenience, satisfaction and safety. Created as a solution for fine-film lovers to still have access to cutting-edge cinema, this new streaming service is basically an on-demand version of Palace Cinemas itself, offering up the specialised and curated content that you would expect from the brand. Much like the OG Netflix model, users are able to rent out movies online for a fee and are then given a window of time to watch them before they are ‘returned’ (to cyberspace). The interface is intuitive and easy to use, making searching for something exciting to watch a total breeze.
To kick off the launch of Palace Home Cinemas, lucky home viewers will be treated to IFF Piccolo, an online mini-festival made up of exclusive highlights from the 2020 edition of the ST. ALi Italian Film Festival. The program will be available to preview for a limited time only, bringing a sense of exclusivity to the whole at-home experience. Us Queenslanders are lucky enough to be able to attend the festival in person at Palace locations across the state, but the Palace Home Cinema model means that our southern mates still enduring restrictions can access Italian Film Festival flicks from home – no FOMO or spoilers here!
