Palace Cinemas, in partnership with Young Henrys, is proud to present our very first, PALACE TOURING: 2019 MUSIC FILM FESTIVAL, a series of the most iconic music feature films from the past 40 years. Combining a variety of musical and cinematic genres, but all united in the myriad of emotion and life that music brings.
With special events hosted by Young Henrys for our Opening & Closing Nights (with a complimentary beer or cider on arrival!)*, we’re thrilled to open with the Australian Premiere of the brand new, stunning 4K restoration – THE DOORS: THE FINAL CUT – supervised by Oliver Stone and brought to life with a newly remastered soundtrack. A psychedelic and powerful musical portrait that brilliantly captures the furious energy of the 60s and the myth of The Doors’ iconic frontman, Jim Morrison – the man whose music shaped an era.
And to close out some of the greatest music films ever made, we’re bringing a brand new music documentary that’s sure to join the ranks of cinema greats. Hot off the heels from its screenings at SXSW and Sydney Film Festival, we present – THE CHILLS: THE TRIUMPH & TRAGEDY OF MARTIN PHILLIPPS, a documentary that journeys to the heart of one of New Zealand music’s most genius and beloved bands. Told through their eccentric bandleader and his personal struggles, as well as bracing archive footage of the glory years, it’s a revitalising, honest and inspiring tribute to a great band.
