Whether you want to watch the latest blockbuster, a family friendly film or an independent masterpiece in an intimate venue, you’ll be able to during your visit to the Island.
The Isle of Man boasts two state of the art modern cinemas as well as a number of smaller venues which provide a more intimate setting.
The Palace Cinema in Douglas, which started life as the Palace Lido, is now the largest of the cinemas in the Isle of Man with two screens and a capacity of almost 400.
State of the art digital projector systems, including 3D projection, ensures visitors get an enhanced viewing experience every time, with multiple screenings during peak periods.
For variety try the Broadway Cinema which is located in the Villa Marina. This 154 seat venue is fully equipped with the latest cutting edge sound and projection equipment and screens the newest releases daily, as well as matinee performances for children at the weekends.
If you would prefer to see something less mainstream, in a more intimate venue, head for the Peel Centenary Centre in the west of the Island where you’ll find the local film club - Films in Peel.
Run by volunteers, Films in Peel screens two extensive film programmes a year. As well as mainstream movies the club also shows work by local filmmakers and many of the films that have been shot on location in the Isle of Man over the years.
