The Electric Palace Cinema

Hands up how many different photos of chairs can you put in one post? When they are a vintage velvet how could anyone resist? The Electric Palace Cinema is an independent Art House cinema that sits up in the heart of the old town here in Hastings. According to, the cinema “aims to bring to Hastings a wide choice of films and film related events, with regular screenings of Contemporary, Classic and World Cinema.” I met with Rachel with the warmest smile who told me of how she has been a part of the cinema for around twelve years now. The cinema is run by a team of four and then lots of volunteers from in and around Hastings and this community spirit is what makes the cinema so special. You can hire the cinema for birthdays and events. I once surprised my Dad with a film here and he loved the idea. It’s something memorable and different – especially for men! Couples – you can hire out this cinema for a date for two! How romantic! You can chose your film and rock up, sit back and enjoy. Prices begin from around £100.   G X
