Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went to see Avatar 2 but walked out because the viewing experience was dreadful. I asked the manager why the picture was such bad quality (almost like it was being screened in 8-bit) and the 3D being out of register and she replied "I don't know, I just press the button". Managed to get my money back but feel sorry for the rest of the audience who had to sit through 3.5 hours of crappy picture quality. One of the staff did quietly say to me that they already had a lot of walk-outs in previous screenings. So it seems the projectionists skill is somewhat lacking in Batemans bay. Also, the cinema smelled really damp.

Addendum: Saw the film a week later screened properly - and it was awesome.

The staff was very friendly,helpful due to my mum needing help to get up there , They have a chair lift . Price very good ok chairs not 100% but clean and not broken. Services at the counter was very polite, if when on holidays again there was a movie we want to see we will go there again.

This cinema has a different name, but it was a great way to spend the afternoon. The attendant even bought our coffees to us in the theatre. The choc tops are good.
There is no lift so you have to use the stairs to access which may be a problem for some.

I was firstly ‘greeted’ (grunted at) by a young guy who clearly wanted to be anywhere but at work. Was then told gruffly that I needed to step out of line with my toddler to get cash as they don’t have eftpos (is this a tax thing?).

Next, was asked by a lady if I could please check my bag in - my nappy bag / bag for my toddler, as apparently that was there policy. I was told that I would be able to go out of the cinema and get things out of the bag if needed but that it needed to stay outside the cinema. Apparently bags take up space, you see. I made it clear I needed the bag but they didn’t care and insisted. They already had my money after all.

Get inside and every second woman is carrying a large handbag with the equivalent or larger volume of the nappy bag I brought along. My daughter is 3 and needed to be cleaned up during the movie but was scared of being left alone in the cinema. End result, I took my shirt off and cleaned her up with it, and she also now has a dress that is ruined.

What an awful, pokey, rude and unprofessional cinema. Do yourselves a favour - keep driving.

They told me that it is cash only because they can't run a EFTPOS machine on their internet connection, lol, really, how come the shops on either side of you can? So you line up to buy your cash only ticket, you can't buy your snacks from there, you must then go stand in another line for that. No prices listed, and a slurpie drink is $6! (Maccas is $1!), ridiculously expensive! Cinema's are small and when there are not a lot of people in there, comfortable. When there is a full house, you can't see over anyone in front of you. Needs a total re haul - or competition to step up a bit.

My family (2 adults, 4 teenagers) split across 3 movies in a wet afternoon this week. We were happy that we could all see a movie at roughly the same time. Cash only caught us out and we had to pay to get cash out at the atm. My daughter and I enjoyed Mary Poppins, seats were comfy and sound was fine. My husband found the sound in Aquaman really hard to hear. Good price tickets, terrible prices at candy bar.

My husband and I have gone to this cinema numerous times in the last year to see Book Club, Ladies in Black, Bohemian Rhapsody, to name a few. Service from the staff is always polite and helpful. You are always treated politely if you are polite to them. I don't know what the fixation about paying with cards is. It is such a small amount. I always pay cash so this is never a problem for me. We always have the obligatory frozen icecream. Yes, the cinema could do with a spruce up and the venue could do with a working lift. We find the stairs a bit taxing, but we always enjoy our experience at the cinema.

Sunday afternoon and thought about going to the movies. Long story short best available time and type 40min drive.
Have visted there before so was expecting the same. Location staff all ok. Ease of parking.
However it surprised me that you cant use your debit/credit card to pay for tickets. There is ATM in the entrance/foyer. Come on its 2018
Only one other issue was the seating I found it a Little Neck Stretching to see over the seats.

This is the second time I've been to this Cinema and it doesn't get better. It needs cleaning in one of the cinemas you the actual screen needs a good clean you could see smears all over it,it also has ridiculously high chairs that you feel like craning your neck ovet. They don't take card,cash only and then you have to pay 2.50 to use the epos machine. They charge $5 for a coffee which is nothing but burnt milk.Really not a good experience you can only hope the movie you chose is a winner.
