Pálás Cinema

Pálás is a three screen arthouse cinema right in the heart of Galway's Latin Quarter which is committed to programming the best Irish and international films. The eclectic schedule includes feature films, shorts, classics, foreign language and animated films, feature length documentaries, inventive special events and festivals.

Their core specialist programme sometimes crosses over into mainstream cinema when the film or its talent (writer, director, cast) may be of particular interest to the target audience. This programme serves to challenge the audience and encourage engagement with current aesthetic, political, social and cultural issues and trends.

Designed by architect Tom de Paor, Pálás is a concrete monolith. The double height basement houses a three screen independent cinema alongside a bar and restaurant for you to enjoy with your fellow film lovers. It occupies the garden of a reinstated 1820s merchant house. Throughout the building, you will discover 22 resin coated windows designed by Irish artist Patrick Scott.
