A great local cinema, with a good choice of movies. Clean and well maintained and some unusual movies are screened.

“Nice Local Cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

One of the greatest attractions for The Bridgeway is that it's unlike the big multi cinemas that you find in the suburbs. It's got a friendly local feel and is in the very attractive Northcote Point neighbourhood - just a quick trip across the bridge for those in from the city. Does not have loads of advertisements before the film either.

“A local icon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

This is a cinema that found a niche and filled it proudly. It is a sophisticated "arthouse" cinema but in the suburbs - so no hassles with parking, and easy access to the bridge and city centre. It shows a great mix of current releases along with Festival films and opera/National theatre productions. 2 Restaurants - one casual and one higher end- are nextdoor/across the road, and a good wine bar is 3-4 minutes walk away. As others have mentioned, there is no pervasive stink of popcorn, and you can get a good glass of wine or cup of coffee while you wait. As locals, we don't mind having no street parking outside our houses when a popular film is showing - we just enjoy having the Bridgeway a 3 min walk away!

“Beautiful cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

I have been to this cinema a few times and it is always a lovely place to go. Parking can be tricky at busy times. The staff here are so friendly and the cinema is just beautiful. Helps that it is only 5 minutes from home too! :)
