Palace Westgarth

Film Northcote

This place is like taking a trip back to the golden age of Hollywood – the Scarlet O’Hara-esque stairwell is just one example – and for such an opulent old cinema, the cosy seats and wide screens make for excellent viewing. The Palace has just had $4 million facelift but has lovingly maintained the art deco architecture throughout. It also hosts international film festivals as well as Hollywood blockbusters.

    The best horror movies, just as major as the more reputable stuff, work on a primal level, beyond plot or words. They grab at your bowels. Dario Argento’s 1977 stunner Suspiria, an explosion of colour, gore and vaulting stylistic ambition, is un...
