And just like that, Melbourne got a flashy new cinema.

Palace Cinemas has just announced a new cinema offering at Palace Cinema Como. It’s called Palace Platinum, and you can think of it like Palace’s version of Gold Class (but, you know, better because it’s platinum).

Cinema-goers can expect fully reclining leather seats, personalised in-cinema wait service and intimate screenings that fit a total of 14 guests.

You won’t have to settle for stale popcorn again. The in-cinema dining menu includes share plates, charcuterie boards and ciabattas as well as options from surrounding restaurants. Choc tops are premium and handmade – as you’d expect.

The area is also open to guests before screenings, where you can have a pre-show drink or snack in the lounge bar.

You can find a screening here.
