“Not a bad cinema...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

...The girls behind the counter here do make a difference though. Whilst they don't offer a "Gold Class" as such, the girls were more than happy to accommodate to bringing us in our drinks and food later into the movie. The seating isn't bad and it is clean.

“Pleasant experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

As visitors to Townsville we made a last minute decision to see a movie. To be honest we probably only chose Event over Reading because I am a Cinebuzz member. This was a fairly average cinema in my opinion, nothing stood out as overwhelmingly positive or negative. I did notice however that on the day we went the movies showing and screen times for each were almost identical to those showing at Reading cinemas. It might be an idea for Event to provide a point of difference in session times when the same movies are screening at each.

“Good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I came here with my family and most of the time only with my son as it always has good offer especially when it comes holiday season. It has much better value compare the other two cinemas in the city, but strong advise for the management to pay attention for cleanliness especially for the regular cinema (and not the 3D) as the it smell like the air con does not work properly, the floor was quite messy with the left overs snacks or pop corns sometime we found the seat also quite a bit dirty. Other than that, we can't expect too much for this very affordable cinema.

“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

After reading the reviews I had to check I was doing review for same venue, Saw Hobbit in 3D and really enjoyed it.
Whilst the staff were not helpful at all. We found the cinema to be in very good condition,central location with easy parking and the seats were really great, large comfy. The cinema only had around 10 people in there, but still someone managed to constantly crinkle that chip packet, seriously I prefer to stay home and watch it in the comfort of home, but some movies really need that big screen.
