I have been here twice now since the upgrade, we came last night and last month, exceptional experiences both times. The entrance where you can purchase tickets from (or book online like I did and just head straight through) is like its own metropolis with bars and quick food outlets but then with your typical cinema snacks including Self-Serve popcorn,...

We came here as our second choice cinema. We typically go to Hoyts Eastland . Both have "reclining" seats and not being able to see the movie we wanted at a good time, we chose the next closest with reclining seats... Chadstone .... but Hoyt's Chadstone have really packed them in and limiting the recline because you'd hit the chair... More

Very new format and layout. They have used space well. The options and approach to the theatre is unique- the busker/ musician, the bar, the candy store and the seating area. The layout of the cinema can be confusing, like a maze with arrows pointing in the wrong direction at times. The confusion is when patrons have to be ushered... More

Gave the new Hoyts complex, Chadstone a try last week - love it. Was a little mystified with the ticketing system, but once we realised it is all automated via the screens in the foyer, it was a breeze to purchase tickets and make our way to the cinema (number on the tickets). Had heard all about the recliners -... More

Free popcorn in a smaller suitably sized container plus the free soft drinks are great and the reclining seats also a part of the luxury you want to pay extra for. Attended the new Lux cinema at Hoyt's twice now. While they are trying to emulate the Gold Class standard at a lower price but the young people who are... More

Second time to Hoyts Lux Chadstone. Total fail both times. So disorganised, poor service, forgot us both times. (Once is forgivable, twice is unacceptable). The seats and cinema is great though

I had never tried Hoyts Chadstone before its renovation however since it reopened I have been five times with a wheelchair bound friend of mine. The staff have been super friendly and the new design of the food and drink area is really interactive and makes you feel really happy. The Cinema seats are comfy and the recline feature is... More

we saw two films over the weekend and one on the extreme screen. The chairs were comfy and relaxing in both cinemas and the sound in the extreme screen was awesome.
