A sensitive, two-year refurbishment

Chapman Taylor’s Madrid studio created a timeless design for Madrid’s Cine Yelmo Luxury Palafox Cinema, which reopened to the public in September 2019 after a two-year refurbishment.

Luxury and comfort

The elegant redesign of the 350-seat movie theatre for Yelmo Cines creates a luxury environment which combines the ambience and comfort of the golden age of cinema with state-of-the-art audiovisual technology.

Retro design touches

The lobby, bar area and public amenities have been completely modernised while maintaining its historical golden dome, using retro design touches, with a striking motif of black and gold materials blending with high-quality ceramics and glass throughout. Food and drink can be ordered from the bar or from the automatic kiosks in the lobby.

Service to your seat

The luxury upgrade of the well-known 1960s landmark also included the provision of large and extra-comfortable leather recliners to host approximately 50 people in each of the seven theatres, with more space between the rows, folding tables, small lamps and buttons for calling waiters to your seat during the trailers if customers want a gin & tonic, hamburger or crêpe.

Chapman Taylor's Madrid studio designed the two-year refurbishment of this well-known Madrid cinema.
