Gold Class - Watch Movie

Good night overall. Gold class is a little expensive, but well worth it as an occasional treat. Strangely enough, they do not accept American Express, despite one of the first... read more

Good night overall. Gold class is a little expensive, but well worth it as an occasional treat. Strangely enough, they do not accept American Express, despite one of the first screen ads being for American Express

Three of us were given free drink cards for this bar from Village Cinemas. When we went there we were greeted with nail clippings in our drinks! We couldn't believe it! How disgusting. For a bar that's just opened, they've done pretty poor on the hygiene side of things. Never went back again. Plus the manager was quite arrogant. We... More

With plenty of eateries, Target and a 7 cinema Village complex The Jam Factory is a great experience. It's clean with plenty of space. Lots to do. The cinema had comfortable seating with friendly and pleasant staff. Worth visiting.

Attended the Village Cinemas here. The Cinemas are good (went to Gold Class).

The shops here aren't necessarily... More

The Jam Factory precinct provides a nice blend of Cuisine, Village Cinemas and Target Shopping, something out of the way in Chapel Street. Worth the Visit.

Managed to get this photo whilst the movie was going. Don't know was more entertaining, The Revenant or the mice having fun with popcorn. Disgusting. I first saw a mouse climbing up the curtain beside our seat, so we moved to the front of the cinema only to find 2 more more nice having a wonderful time feeding off popcorn... More

Change is on the way here once again in the inner suburb of South Yarra. The old brick "Jam Factory" buildings have seen plenty of change since the 19th century. First the site was used for brewing, then the making of fruit preserves and jams. In 1979 the buildings became a shopping centre. In the mid 1990s there was an... More

Not a bad place to go to the movies. Enough food outlets to please everyone, nicely air conditioned on a hot day, parking out the back and easy public transport, interesting architecture. All in all, a good night out.
