The seating is great and the theatre is not too big so cosy and intimate. they only screen selected movies so check on what's currently screening before you go. The icecreams are... More

We dropped in to see the historic theatre and ended up staying and watching a movie. The building is very old and would love it if they removed the paint from the original old cut sandstone bricks and restore it back to its glory. The foyer is lovely and sell lots of crafty goodies. While we were looking around we... More

Avoca Picture Show is a great little heritage theatre. It shows current and specialty films as well as cultural events (from live Uzk theatre to surf films to French and Italian nights). Also shows artistic films that don't get much if any airing at theatre chains as well as good foreign language films. Seating is comfortable, sound and picture quality... More

I love this theatre, it's like a step back in time but more than that they offer films a little more alternative and part take in many film festivals such as the Ocean Film Festival and Banff and documentaries. They often provide entertainment in the grassed back area before these festivals.

Best picture theatre! It's a total experience watching a movie here. It's like stepping back in time but with extras. Grab a glass of wine and experience a great couple of hours.

Quaint little theatre showing mainly foreign films. Very cute, ambiance was great, no complaints. Smaller cinemas, but reasonably priced for something that is literally backing onto the beach!

Avoca Beach Theatre allows you to enjoy a pre movie drink, coffee or chocolate ice cream. The foyer is full of unusual home ware items. The theatre often hosts events for the community. Light lunches and morning teas can be had in the courtyard. A great location, near the sea side and other dining venues.

It is like cinemas were when we were children, with old timber paneling and a feeling of excitement. It is a treat to watch a film at this old beauty.

This is a lovely old word (in a good way!) cinema in a very relaxed beach setting but with owners who definitely punch above their weight by not only showing movies but also hosting various musical events. Saw David Helfgott play the piano. Amazing! Thanks also to Beth for making us very welcome.
