What a great experience! Quaint old style picture theatre surprisingly large and comfortable despite outside appearances. Not sure why they don't have more signage from the beach as i think they could miss out on passing patronage. We were visiting the area and had looked up the movie times but were surprised we had to google maps specific directions from... More

Avoca Beach theatre in an icon of the coast. Known for foreign and art house movies and sometimes bigger productions. Entering you are greeted by an elaborate array of art and craft items all for sale. The character and old world charm of the theatre is what a movie experience was before mega upsized everything. Theme nights and fund raisers... More

We love going to Avoca beach picture theatre. Great range of movies from all genres. Special event nights and local films. Easy to find and park with many cafés and restaurants within walking distance. There are lots of interesting items for sale in the foyer - jewellery, clothing, art etc. - and it's licensed.

This is a beautiful old theatre which takes you back in time. They have tea & coffee & comfy lounges to sit on. It can be hired for celebrations as well. The seats are grand & comfy. The latest films are shown.

Went here simply because it was a rainy day, I am so glad we did, it is a fabulous place, lovely reception area with very interesting things to buy. The seats were comfortable and the film was the latest. Long may this little gem last.

There's nothing like a regional picture theatre - especially one that is licenced. We recently saw a movie here and loved the experience. We were a bit early so browsed the items for sale, could have had a tea/coffee and treat but instead took a seat on one of the comfy lounges in the waiting area. If you're in Avoca,... More

The Avoca Beach Theatre has THE best movies on the central coast. Enter into the reception area of thevtheatre, discover old posters, comfy couches, a lovely atmosphere. While the popular movies are screened, the owners also have screens of subtitled movies, art house movies, they also have fun nights...tonight there is a Jewish night with nibbles and a movie, they...
