Had an absolutely awful experience here with a function. Go anywhere else or have a party at home. Woeful customer service.

One of the best places to watch a movie ... great audio and picture even in one of the smaller theatres and an excellent array of food and drink. Don’t leave Sydney without seeing a movie here.

Always love coming here for concerts & old films...comfy seats & great ambience. They also run current films, but I love their great concerts (about every quarter) with the Mel-o-tones big band, followed by a Tom & Jerry cartoon & then the "old" film...great fun!

This is a beautiful period cinema showing a variety of different film types, really evoking the feel of a bygone era. Although it is about 30 minutes from Circular Quay, it’s worth the trip for anyone who is fond of movies.
