This is my local cinema and it is an absolute treasure. Forget about the impersonal multiplex experience and instead come and luxuriate in the old red velour seats while drinking a tea or coffee out of real china. The treats are super affordable and so...More

A great local movie theatre featuring a wide range of movie genres suitable for all the family. Tickets are excellent value for money and there is also a reasonably priced snack bar available. Much better prices and service than Hoyts! Highly recommended.

Glenbrook Cinema is one of a kind. A lovely old fashioned cinema with genuinely friendly staff, such an inviting experience to be escorted to your seat and on exiting the cinema sometimes offered a sweet (usually a Mintie). Along with the usual popcorn, drinks, lollies...More

Much better than the huge cinema complexes. Easy parking, friendly staff, yummy choc tops and generally considerate patrons as it's the neighbourhood cinema. Tend to show movies for a week so need to be quick! Book online.
