Palace Amusement Co (1921) Ltd1A South Camp Rd Kgn C S O
The Palace Amusement Company (1921) Limited was formed by Audley Morais, and operated as a Private Company prior to 1921 (silent movie days). He re-formed the company and offered shares to the public in 1921.
Over the years the Company operated Movies, Rose Garden, and Palace Cinemas. Gaiety and Majestic was subsequently acquired, Odeon (Mandeville) was leased, and other cinemas (urban and rural) were built. It operated cinemas and distributed films to many of the independent cinemas that existed in Jamaica and Cayman.
Dolby Surround Sound Stereo came in the 1980’s which made motion picture sound a new experience. Speakers were now surrounding the audience which greatly enhanced the sound effects from all angles pulling them closer to the action on the screen.
Today, Digital Sound is used along-side Dolby. This new equipment uses computerized technology to not only enhance what Dolby provides, but also allows the audience to hear every spoken word and every sound effect with absolute clarity, making the experience as close to reality as possible. Since then we have also had two (2) upgrades of sound, and today Carib has amplifiers which will be rare for the next 5 years, in the motion picture industry. Read more......Read less
