The cinema offers the newest seating and screens. Whilst we were there for an early session, the staff were all very welcoming and friendly. The cinema was clean and fresh and all the amenities were what you would expect from a good cinema.

Always a good showing of movies, even those that aren't shown elsewhere. Price is quite high, but the chairs are comfy & the feel of the place is good.

I am amazed these places can continue to operate when only 20 people attend a showing! We had a few hours spare in town and saw "Suicide Squad". Fun movie. Seats were comfortable enough and the popcorn was salty :)

The VMax seating was my only reason for attending this cinema. At just over 2 hours and 30 minutes, I needed to be in a comfortable seat to be able to enjoy watching Batman V Superman, and comfy seating is certainly what you get in...More

We really like event cinemas, we like how they show movies such as risen & war room that no other cinema in Townsville shows. The seating is comfortable, parking is easy & staff are friendly. Price is a little steep in comparison to other Townsville...More
