It is now $12 a movie ticket for seniors. Hoyts Erina is still $9.50. It's greed, the news mentioned the other night re picture theatres upping ticket prices. Avoca should be competitive and remain the same as Erina. People may not mind an extra dollar...More

Charming historic cinema with a kiosk to add the required choc top to the experience. Staff are always friendly & Beth's gift ware & clothing are quirky & unique for that something-different. Moderately priced I like the boutique collection of movies they show.

We attended a Tango musician singing dancing show..a live act. Theatre mixes movies with live shows. It has a small intimate bar...snacks available seats very comfortable good sound system....if in the region check the web site for shows. Easy parking .

There is no on site parking. Allow plenty of time in busy periods. May have to walk some distance.
