good screens and seats, generally good customer service, but the prices are getting exorbitant, especially for food and drinks.

By way of introduction, please read some of my other reviews and note Im generally a positive reviewer. However, Hoyts are worthy of scorn and a warning to people wanting a good experience. After the last visit being terrible, I decided to give these guys one more chance. NEVER again and I suggest you don't waste your time and money... More

Their website doesn't lie. It's a BIG screen. HEAPS of leg room and very comfortable seats. I like the fact that you can lift up the arm rests so that the seats become more of a couch. We sat in the middle of the theatre, but probably better to sit near the back for the optimum viewing experience.

If you happen to take advantage of a promotional voucher. Be very careful as not all the rules are on the voucher. When we tried to talk it thru, the supervisor on the shift wouldn't come out to discuss.

Came here with friends to watch a movie at Lux. Second time in about a month I've been to the Lux here. The couches are super comfortable, recline with a foot rest. The food really needs a re do though.The fish batter was too thick, and v difficult to eat in the dark. Pulled pork nachos very tasty, but also... More

This isn't really the cinema's fault but there was a group of people that were constantly talking and getting up and moving around the theatre. They left the theatre several times and came back in so if any staff had been around surely they would have noticed that. Everyone else paid good money to watch the movie not the pathetic... More

Enjoyed watching hunt for the wilderpeople here. Was tad worried about being seated near the front however this was no problem due to screen placing.

Went to theatre 5 on Sunday night and an overwelling smell of odour was present. Not sure if it was from the previous sittings as it was very noticable. The floors were not cleaned. Seems like it could do with a renovation of seating fabric. looking tired

Always a good arvo with the girls when there is a chicks flick on.. Cinema is always clean and tidy. However the lighting could be a bit brighter when you walk in and the movie hasn't started and the prices for movie and popcorn/ice cream seem to go up each time.
