Love going to the movies a couple of times a month with some friends some popcorn and a good movie, which are changing weekly. I joined the movie club and only paying $10 for the ticket, do its good value for a great night out.

I saw Breath today at this small cinema complex. What a refreshing change from the huge Events or Reading cinemas. The foyer area and toilets were clean and tidy. The girls serving at the counter were friendly and helpful. The cinemas are not huge but...More

Only movie theater in town. Current films but limited showing for a tourist town. Went several times and not to many people go during the week. Not well advertised. Found it by chance across from Woolworth supermarket.

Great place to spend a few hours, small cinema with a good vibe, how cinemas used to be. Worth a visit especially if weather is not good for the beach.

Cinema is very small but appropriate for a small coastal town. I found everything completely overpriced though - this is not Event Cinemas by any stretch but is priced the same - it cost almost $70 for 2 adults/1 child, popcorn, a couple of drinks...More

$16.50 for an adult and $14.50 for kids? Rip off! This business seems happy to rip off the tourists. Try Raymond Terrace for $10.00 straight per ticket ... or Reading Charlestown is $9.00 per adult and $7.00 for kids.
