LEGO Modular Palace Cinema press-release

by admin on January 20, 2013

in LEGO Modular Buildings

As we discussed previously the next LEGO Modular Building is the #10232 LEGO Palace Cinema. Although we have seen leaked images of the LEGO Palace Cinema already, the official press-release just came out a couple of days ago, so I thought this is a good time to revisit the Palace Cinema and look at all the details. Below is the official press-release of the #10232 LEGO Modular Palace Cinema. Check it out! 😛

#10232 LEGO Palace Cinema

Build a grand premiere at the Palace Cinema! It’s premiere night at the Palace Cinema! Illuminate the night sky with the spotlights as the child star arrives in a fancy black limousine! Gather the crowd on the star-studded sidewalk, then head into the detailed lobby with a concession stand and ticket area! Take the grand staircase into the theater with a large screen, movie projector and reclining chairs for 6 minifigures.

As the LEGO Palace Cinema has quite a unique style, what I have been really curious to see is how it looks next to the other LEGO Modular Buildings released previously. Here is a photo of how the Palace Cinema looks next to the #10218 LEGO Modular Pet Shop, and the #10224 LEGO Modular Town Hall.

So what do you think of the LEGO Modular Palace Cinema? Personally I like it a lot, and I’m especially happy that after the steeply priced Town Hall we are back to the $150 range. What are your thoughts? Feel free to share them in the comment section below! 😉

B/W movie? I’m not sure exactly which age this is supposed to be, (2o’s-30’s?) but it seems the designers have went for a nostalgic appeal.

Yes, the set designer said that the the inspiration came from cinemas in the 1930s. 😉

Cool, it’s a shame they still had nitrate films at that time, and so much material has been lost…

But surely they had separate camera rooms already by then, and the design here is a simplification?

Using indented bricks for the theater sign to enhance the logotype letters, that’s clever.

the only reason i’d want to buy this set, is because i’d be a good background building in a stop motion!

Forever Sorting 🙂 I was a little disappointed in the small amount of seats, but oh well. I am glad that the 200 dollar price is not going to be a permanent thing though.

I noticed that too! LEGO certainly knows about us AFOLs I’d say.

What a great set! I was there at BrickFair AL when Kevin unveiled the set! It does have stickers for movie posters, but they are really cool, and include one called “Mystery On The Monrail” as a nod to us AFOLs who want the monorail to come back. A lucky attendee got to take home this built set too! BrickFair AL was so much fun, and everyone who can make it should come next year.

Andy, thanks for sharing! I’m glad you were able to go! Yeah, I have heard that some LEGO fans are really upset about thsoe stickers – this is the first time the Modulars got stickers within the set. I relaly dislike stickers myself, but in case of the psoters, I think it is a pretty reasonable solution. We shall see when the set comes out. 🙂
