A real cinematic experience, they obviously respect movies. The theater is beautiful and enchanting, with a variety of awesome independent films to see. They pick the best movies and are SO MUCH nicer than the Dendy. Bar is cool, mellow & classy without the snobbery....More

The maple pecan old fashioned is to die for!! It has a lovely vintage vibe and a small welcoming bar. The cinema is tiny and cozy, a great way to revisit old favourites with your favourite people! Look forward to being back!

Our most favourite way to see a movie. Small, intimate, wonderful venue. Movie selection which are not the norm, great wines available. This is the way to see a movie - almost don't want to review, keep it our secret :)

Most of the staff are really professional, which is refreshing. Try the Paramount House, or Apple Sour.. Yummy. Best Cinema in Sydney too
