The Electric Palace cinema was set up in 2002, with the intention of widening the filmic offer in Hastings. Since opening, it has established itself both as a favourite with locals, and as a hotspot for cultural tourists.
Aside from the quality of the films that are screened, the Electric Palace stages live comedy, music and theatre. The venue is not-for-profit, and exists solely to enhance the cultural opportunities within Hastings.
The cinema will be screening a ROOT 1066-commissioned film, Michael Smith's Stranger on the Shore (featured image).
Situated in the Old Town, newcomers are always invited to partake in fantastic cinema.
