The Palace & Nova Cinemas opened in 1996 & 1997. 3 years later the two cinemas joined forces in South Australia to become what you now know as the Palace Nova Eastend Cinemas. In 2009 the Imax building also came on board; adding to the business it’s flagship screen, and Adelaide’s largest - the ExiMax, increasing the number of cinemas to 10.

The Cinemas are located in the heart of the city in close proximity to each other on cosmopolitan Rundle Street. Cinemas 1-7, including the ExiMax, are located in the Palace building (3 Cinema Pl, Off 250 Rundle St) - Cinemas 8, 9 & 10 are located in the Nova building (251 Rundle St). These locations are denoted in our sessions via a P for Palace, and N for Nova, and an E for ExiMax.

We are not a franchised group or public-listed company. We are proud to offer an alternative to multiplex (or mainstream) cinemas, in that we run a mix of fine film, blockbusters, operas, special events, and film festivals.

We set ourselves further apart by presenting this varied film offering in a sophisticated environment. All our cinemas are licensed throughout, providing not only the usual cinema food of popcorn and soft drink; but also an extensive wine list, barista coffee, cheese and antipasto platters. As of December 2011 Palace Nova are proud to have completed conversion of all cinemas to the latest, innovative, high-quality digital film.

There is plenty of public parking in the Rundle Street area: try Ezy Park in Union and Frome Street, Centrepoint Car Park cnr Rundle & Pulteney Streets, Bent Street Car Park, U Park Rundle St & North Tce.

If you're using public transport, the Adelaide Metro Free Cityloop 99C bus service will drop you within an easy 3 minute stroll of our cinemas. Alight at stop 29 (Grenfell St) or 30 (East Terrace).
