RAINE Square’s new retail and dining precincts will open on Monday while the much-anticipated Palace Cinemas start screenings the following day.

This is the first stage of the $200 million development by Charter Hall.

Headlined by the nine-screen Palace Cinemas, the Michelin-starred dim sum chain Tim Ho Wan and Coles Central, Raine Square has 12 casual dining restaurants, including Greenhorns, Brezel Brothers, Voodoo Coffee, Cocolat and Thai Thyme.

On Monday, the public will be able to access the precinct via the new Raine Lane off William Street and there will be direct tunnel access from Perth Underground Station.

There will also be free coffee on opening day.

Charter Hall development manager Patrick Hollingworth said Raine Square provided a unique mix on the retail floor.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the response from the Perth people,” Mr Hollingworth said.

“We’ve created quite an experience in Raine Square and it’s an experience that’s quite unlike any other experience in Perth.”

Mr Hollingworth said the new Palace Cinemas would draw people in to the city as a leisure destination as well as a work destination.

Palace Cinemas chief executive Benjamin Zeccola said the cinemas would have the most comfortable reclining leather seats, the best movies, bespoke bars and a rooftop terrace.

“Palace Raine Square is bringing cinema re-imagined back to Perth city,” Mr Zeccola said.
