We look forward to welcoming you to the Electric Palace cinema in Hastings Old Town, with our ticket price of just £5 for most screenings, for young people aged 21 and under (with ID).

Choose from film screenings including 11am Thursday screenings, Pride events and upcoming 'Out on Tuesday' LGBTQIA-themed Tuesday night films, and all sorts of special live events you won't want to miss. And did you know we run monthly B Movie Fan Club screenings, and the Hastings Punk Choir meets at the cinema every Monday night? All welcome.

Hope you can make a date to take in the wonder of cinema, but for a price that won't break your student budget!
