Antonio Zeccola’s involvement in film dates back to the 1960’s where his first foray into the motion picture industry was (like his father’s before him) a rented town hall screening films to small but enthusiastic audiences. His obvious passion and commitment translated into success very quickly and by the mid to late 1970’s Antonio operated a number of suburban cinemas including The Metropolitan in Brunswick, The Roma in Bourke Street and The Palace in Bourke Street from which the group derived its current corporate identity as Palace.
The group continued to flourish throughout the 1980’s and early 1990’s with the addition of a number of successful locations such as the Dendy Brighton, The Balwyn Cinema, as well as The Verona and Academy Cinema in Paddington, NSW. In the last 20 years Palace has continued to grow their captive audience with modernist expansions in Melbourne and Sydney, introductions in Brisbane, Byron Bay, Canberra and Perth, and preservation of heritage art-deco gems, such as The Astor Theatre, Australia’s longest-running single-screen venue. Today, Palace Cinemas comprises over 180 screens across 24 locations nationally that offer sophisticated comfort and a chance to escape and indulge.

The company was organized by James Cotter, who in late 1980s acquired the Reading Company, an American former railway company that held a portfolio of real estate properties. Through the rest of the 1990s, Cotter acquired, developed, and operated real estate properties, focusing on properties occupied by cinema exhibitors and live theatre operators. Most of the company’s holdings by this time were located far beyond the company’s historical native ground of Pennsylvania’s coal mines. Reading entered Australia in 1995 and New Zealand in 1997, developing a chain of multiplex cinemas that operated under the Reading banner and exhibited mainstream films. Domestically, Reading pursued a more offbeat business direction, acquiring an art-house theatre at the historic Cable Building in Lower Manhattan in 1996 that operated under the name Angelika Film Center. The company also acquired and expanded a chain of multiplex cinemas throughout the island of Puerto Rico.
James Cotter died in 2014, leaving the company to his son James Jr., and his daughters Ellen and Margaret. In 2017, the California Supreme Court insisted that a temporary trustee be appointed to the company following a dispute over the management of the company between James Jr. and Ellen.
