    Always enjoy seeing a movie here. Prices are good. You can buy 6 tickets for $54 & there is no expiry date (to my knowledge). Candy bar prices are very good as well. Cinemas are nice, clean & comforta...  more »

    Instead of being an instant five or one star reviewer, I thought I'd point out the pros and cons of this place. On balance I do believe that while this place is not a one star (as many believe), it has more cons than pros. Pros: - beautiful cinemas with chandeliers and red velvet seats and trims - cheap prices (ours were only $12) Cons: - uncomfortable seats - seats weren't on a slope, so you were looking up at the screen - disappointing candy bar - rude ticket booth staff - cash only - atm costs $3 to use I believe the cash only rule is the most disappointing. I understand the owners may be from a more nostalgic era, but the rest of us don't carry around cash, especially not enough for tickets and candy bar. There is an ATM, but it costs $3 to use. Just get EFTPOS, and charge the standard 1.5% fee for credit cards.

    If you like going to a theatre where people talk and text on their phone throughout the movie, put their feet on the seats, scatter their food everywhere and are there to be 'seen' rather than actually see the movie, then this is not you place. If you want to enjoy a movie, pay cheap prices for the ticket and food, have easy well lit parking and pleasant staff (don't turn up in a singlet and thongs, others don't appreciate your natural body odour) then this is the place for you. The best cinema north of Noosa, first went here in the 70's and the experience has always been good. If people are grumbling, its probably because they've been told off for some of the first paragraph.

    One of the weirdest places I've ever come across in my travels. After being turned away (in a very rude way) as my partner was wearing a singlet, we did some reading and asking around about this odd little run down cinema. Apparently a lot of people have been harassed by the staff of this cinema, including a veteran with PTSD. On top of that, the cinema is cash only? I'm just confused as to how this place is still open. Very odd. I encourage everyone to have a read of the reviews for this place..

    Very rude staff! Not only is the man in the ticket box rude and snobby, we also had people sneaking in staring at us several times while the movie was running. It made me feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. The cinema itself was rather bad as well, no suround sound, small and discoloured screen. Will not go back here again and strongly recommend everyone to spend their money elsewhere.

    Bizarre attempt to preserve some kind of archaic, classist cinema experience reserved only for those old, white locals who seem intimately familiar with a hilariously arbitrary dress code that changes in order to turn away any undesirables. Owners do not appear to have a realistic appraisal of how tacky and decrepit their establishment is - the antiquated, weather beaten, sun damaged exterior a perfect complement to the small seats, low quality screens/sound, strange smell and rude staff who seem to be particularly proud of their trashy faux-antique chandeliers and poor man's art decor interior. The strange little man at the ticket booth pretends to be an officious and commanding gatekeeper to this upper-middle bogan sanctuary - but unfortunately falls short of the mark, coming closer to behaving like a trivial, petulant child guarding a favorite toy. The cash only policy raises immediate red flags and begs the question - is this a business or a vanity project? Harrassment of veterans in order to provide a sanitised environment for local mates is embarrassing and totally unacceptable. One of the strangest small-town experiences I've ever had. Avoid at all costs - strongly advise reading other reviews.
