A decade after it was first announced, and after many delays and setbacks along the way, Galway's three-screen arthouse cinema, Pálás, finally opens its doors tomorrow evening, Friday February 23.

At a press coffee morning on Wednesday, local journalists were shown around the building and heard short speeches from Element Pictures' director Andrew Lowe (whose company runs Pálás), general manager Katie Walsh, and film programmer Charlene Lydon, went so far as to suggest that the wait will have been worthwhile.

While folk in hi-vis jackets and hard hats were still putting the finishing touches to the venue, there was more than enough on show to whet one's appetite about the cinema-going experience which Pálás will offer its patrons.
