“This is why I live in the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

The Watershed is the type of place that keeps me living in the city. It has interesting niche films as well as blockbusters and film fests. The cafe/bar adjacent is convenient, cool yet unpretentious, and a great place to relax with a view of the floating harbour. If I were single, I'd probably look to meet an interesting intellectual type person here.

“A good place to watch the world go by...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

I like the relaxed atmosphere and the variety of food and enertainment available.
Works as well for a mid-afternoon coffee as some ealy evening drinks, whether or not you are going to watch a film.
