Welcome to Galway's Picture Palace. We’re almost there!

The Picture Palace, Galway’s state-of-the-art contemporary arthouse cinema, is the first of its kind in the west of Ireland. Opening soon, it will be a great meeting place for Galway citizens and visitors.

Situated in the heart of the city and close to the historic Spanish Arch, the Picture Palace is just a stone’s throw from Druid Theatre, An Taibhdhearc and Galway City Museum.

This exciting new landmark building is a key element of Galway’s UNESCO City of Film.


“We’re 80% there. The building is standing tall and we’re within sight of the finishing line. Galway’s Picture Palace has one goal in sight - to open the doors of this beautiful building to the public as soon as possible.”

Irish people are the second highest cinema-goers in the world and cinema-going is the most popular and affordable activity for Irish people.
