You speak: We listen - Electric Palace 2013 survey results

A huge thanks to the nearly 100 people who took our recent online survey about the Electric Palace. We’re now working through your comments and acting upon your suggestions.

Electric Palace interior April 2013When asked how we could improve the Electric Palace, comments ranged from “You're totally brilliant, I really enjoy the choice of films” and “There is nothing more homely than an evening out at the Electric Palace,” to “More daytime screenings please!” and, most often, “You definitely need to reupholster your seats”.

Electric Palace Seating Fund

So first, our seats. The message you gave us is that we need to improve our seats, as some of them are a bit worn down. In the short term, we’re providing cushions to make you more comfortable, so do grab a cushion before the film starts on your next visit.

Our priority number one is raising enough money to replace the seats as soon as possible. But for that we need your help. We’ll be holding lots of special fundraising events in aid of the Electric Palace Seating Fund over the coming months, until we raise enough to be able to replace the seats without losing the vintage chic character of the cinema.

So please try to come along to the fundraisers, and spread the word to everyone who’ll listen. It’s your community cinema, so please support us as much as you can to ensure our continued survival.

Daytime screenings, parking and snacks

In the survey responses you also mentioned things like loyalty schemes, whether there is parking available nearby, if there will be more family-friendly screenings, our local refreshments, and private hire availability.

We’ll be adding information to the website to cover many of your questions and comments in the next few weeks, and we’re also hoping to put on a wider selection of films in the daytime.

The Electric Palace: “All in all, a pretty special place”. We’re doing our best to keep it that way.

If you’d like to offer us your support with the Electric Palace Seating Fund, or if you have any questions, please get in touch.
