The Jam Factory was a destination of wonder for my children, and maybe it still is for youngsters. The Cinemas inside remain a popular destination. The decoration is glitzy, there is better food to be had elsewhere on Chapel Street, and I would suggest you book your cinema tickets ahead. One thing in the Jam Factory's favour, it is easy... More

Great little place to stop by for a coffee, grab a movie and update your wardrobe with Topshop/Topman!

My boyfriend and I went there to see a movie and I was pleased to see that the seats were very comfortable. Apparently there's a number system in place with the seating and you must sit where your ticket says. Luckily we were given a seat at the back and in the middle, however to be on the safe side...

Thinking that the Jam Factory is a place in Melbourne for purchasing jams, my family and I took the tram to Chapel Street to visit the factory. When we arrived, we had to spend some time before we could reach the factory and it seemed that most of the people there did not know such place. Also, inside the factory,... More

Great to see Topshop located as part of the Jam Factory with an entrance from both Chapel street and inside the Jam Factory, and delighted to see them open late on a Saturday night to cater for the movie crowd when no one else in Chapel street does. Provides that missing element since Borders departed. Renovations still underway but the... More

Somehow Chapel Street and related facilities have lost it's shine. With Borders gone the Jam Factory is now basically a cinema only.

This place used to be a thriving hub of activity, but now if you take the cinema away there's not much here. Borders has left, so that means it doesn't have much of a drawcard for me - but the Sumo Salad is good as is the coffee in both of the two cafes here.
