“Friendly Cinema”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

A nice relaxing cinema with friendly staff and a brand new sit down cafe which is great. But the cleanliness wasn't great. Screen 5 on 14/8/13 at 6:20 was disgusting. There was popcorn all over the floor from the previous movie.

Hi Harry,
Thanks for your comments and i'm sorry about the popcorn experience. And thanks for the specific details regarding your show time - we're speaking to our floor staff as clearly they must have missed this screen during between shows as it's certainly not the norm here.
Kind Regards
Tony

“IMAX - Wow!!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

This was my first visit to an Imax, and boy was it worth it. I totally take my hat off to the Playhouse for making this investment, as its the only Imax north of Edinburgh and Glasgow.
they have done up the foyer and now have a cafe, which is great.
If you are in Perth, this is well worth a visit.

Thanks very much for your kind words! We're pretty delighted about IMAX!. Our refurbishment works haven't finished yet - still much more of the building to get done so hopefully you'll like what we do.
Thanks again.

“Film made it worth while”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Went to see planes fire and rescue with daughter if it wasnt for film cinema would only get a 1 star. Seats are old and worn and uncomfy serious lack of leg room and put arm on arm rest just about spilling my drink because it was broken.

Thanks for your comments and sorry about the seat. We're in the process of renovations which has started with screen 1 IMAX and the foyer but won't stop there. Hopefully we'll be able to please you with these results on your next visit!

“A classic cinema with great staff”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Perth Playhouse does a fantastic job of catering to all audiences, including live streaming of opera from the Met, art exhibitions from the Tate, theatre and even the odd football match. The refurbishment currently underway should pep up the rather tired facilities. I love the art deco exterior though, redolent of the golden age of cinema. The staff are always amazingly nice - good on you, guys! By the way I am really hoping that the refurb might include putting a non-slip surface on the marble front steps. In wet or slushy weather they are terrifying for the elderly or infirm. Any chance?

Hello and many thanks for the kind words:) We do try hard to bring a broader programme to this area than just the standard film releases. We're also just about to announce shows from the English National Opera too! And we're currently looking at the front steps - should have something in place with all the on going refurbishment.
Kind Regards
Tony

“Great addition for Perth”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

First visit to an IMAX and it won't be the last. Totally loved it felt like I was part of the film. I know that the cinema is being done up but please do something with the old run down toilets.
