Palace Cinemas have announced that they will not renew their lease on the cinemas. Final screenings under the Palace banner are due to take place on October 27th, 2010. There is some optimism that a new lessee will take over the cinemas in the near future. An article to this effect appeared in the Melbourne Age on Friday 1st October 2010.
