The Palace Bioscoop opened in 1915. In 1917, it was rebuilt to the designs of architect W.J. Nelissen. It had an original seating capacity for 750. From 1932 it became a newsreel theatre, known as Palace Filmac.

Operating in recent years as the only single screen cinema in the city, the Cinema Palace closed on January 8th 2011 after playing a week of classic films. The reason for the closure was that the operator, Pathe, opened a multiplex around the corner from the Cinema Palace.

If the new multiplex is “around the corner,” I think it is pathétique that Pathé could not have incorporated this classic theatre into the new complex as the company did when it built a multiplex adjacent to the Tuschinski in Amsterdam.
