    Not your typical cinema. The Art Deco makes this place. Awesome, friendly staff. Keep your eyes peeled for the retro movie nights too.

    Book tickets if you can first. At peak times such as premiere weeks, Saturday nights etc, it gets busy and there are no allocated seats.

    Mainstream and arthouse films in a unique and gorgeous art deco style cinema. Pick up a choc top, sit back and soak up the atmosphere. Even David and Margaret would give it 10/10!

    Excellent range of movies screened regularly here from blockbusters to quality arthouse. The Greek place next door is good for a quick cheap meal after the movie.

    Beautiful old fashioned cinema! Love the schedule with new and old movies! Last Tarantino movie in 70mm Panavision was a rare jewel for few people

    Pre movie drinks at the mayor is a must- though service a little slow for dinner- papaya Thai across the rd is faster.

    Go to a double feature, make sure it's one where the organ guy comes out of the floor. He is the best. Especially when he dresses up. Or just drink rum in the piano bar before a flick...

    If you're driving, there's parking over the street at the little Cremorne Shopping Arcade thing - buy your popcorn from IGA to validate :-) $8 for 3 hours.

    Lavish art deco theatre that dates back to the 1930s. A hidden gem, try the choctops, grab a popcorn and check out the Wurlitzer Organ!

    Great cinema. Have to get there early in prime time though as there is a huge line

    The best cinema in Sydney with a wurlitzer organ playing in the main screen and a pianist in the bar. A slice of 1920's art deco beauty. Read more

    Book and pay online and skip the usually mammoth queue and use your time to grab a drink before the movie.

    A cinema with soul - I hope it does not disappear like many of the top cinemas in Sydney

    Great art deco cinemas. Duck over the road to the IGA supermarket to stock up on lollies and drinks before the movie.

    Check they don't stuff you in their smallest cinema on opening night in 3D at full price!
