We do not pick the new release movies that are played at the Palace.  For that reason… if there is a specific movie that you want to see, sometimes YOU need to bring it to us.  We get most big releases, but small releases are pretty rare for us.  The studios have very targeted areas for their movies and their …

It was our first public movie on Valentine’s Day weekend and I was working around the clock fueled by movie theater popcorn, pure adrenaline, and occasional nap like periods of sleep.
