Brilliant cinema that does not charge the exorbitant process the big cinema chains do. The parking is local street parking. The candy bar sells products at reasonable prices (again not the hugely overpriced items in the large chain cinema complex) It is a simple cinema...More

The cinema screen is tiny and low resolution and the frozen coke machine ran out of coke. We watched a movie here because it wasn’t showing anywhere else. Use this as a last resort. Cinaplex have much better cinemas around the Brisbane area especially the...More

Really enjoyed our movie here for only $8.50 each, can't go wrong! This cinema offers a range of movies & the candy bar prices are cheap as well. Overall a great experience would return if in the area again!

I have visited this cinema irregularly over the years, and rediscovered it last Sunday. My son wanted to see Rogue One, and after the experience of parking (and getting stuck at the faulty gate) at a large shopping centre, I visit conventional cinemas now! Parking...More

A gold class cinema without the price tag!!! Love the cineplex business model. Adult tickets are around $14, vino very reasonable and great little deals like coffee and cake $7.50 (good ☕️ too). Cinema is deluxe! Love it that they put on kids movies during...More
