“What a great cinema”

Summergarden Theatre

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Visited the Summer Garden Cinema in January 2014 to watch Saving Mr Banks.
We were on holiday from the UK & visiting our daughter and her partner who live in Bowen.

The theatre is a wonderful old fashioned intimate family run cinema and we were given a great welcome and lots of interesting information about the theatre and the making of the film Australia in the town by the owner Benny.

Great experience. Well worth a visit and will be back next year.

Thanks Benny

The Summergarden theatre is located in Murroona St bowen. It has two theatres. Tickets prices are fair. Staff are friendly and owner is a character. It is also often used for performances for music or fund raising functions. Made famous when Australia was filmed starring Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman .

Have been to the movies here a couple of times over recent school holidays. Staff are so friendly. Prices are so cheap compared to the major cinemas. A real asset to the community.
Great quality night out viewing.

The Summergarden Theatre is a destination in itself, styled on the lines of a Southern California movie house it has a look that is unforgettable. It has been operated by the De Luca family for the last sixty years. When I took the kids on their school holidays recently, Ben De Luca was there as usual with a personal welcome. The personal service is a feature not just of the small town of Bowen but the enthusiasm shown by the owners and staff that makes in a special treat when you visit the Summergarden Theatre. I have included a link to the Summergarden history page and can suggest that if you are a film lover or just a casual movie goer never pass up on a chance to attend when in Bowen. I enjoy the ambiance of the Summergarden whether I attend alone, with family or, as I have, with a bus load of happy kids on a school holiday trip. The Summergarden is an enjoyable attraction in the climate capitol of the entire world - Bowen, Queensland.
