I am a devoted fan of iconic village theatres and the Avoca Theatre is a classic example - all the modcons of air-conditioning and great sound combined with the front desk charm, comfortable seats, cosy atmosphere, and home-made choc top ice-creams. The theatre works hard to create a point of difference and we chose a new movie from their British... More

This theatre is an historical gem in a beautiful setting. Worth a look even if you don't see a movie. The foyer has an eclectic collection of art and craft for sale. The cafe has great drinks and snacks. Always screens good films. We have also attended the Coasties Film Festival that is interesting.

What a great little cinema that oozes personality and charm, I just hope they don't demolish it to built a multi- complex (which is planned). Love this theatre as it is, a major draw card for Avoca Beach. Great for fund raising and funky movies. Love it! Please leave it.

What would you think of a cinema that advertised tickets on its website for $20, and then charged you $23? I would think they were in breach of fair trading legislation. The woman on the desk wasn't interested, said to "see Beth and Norman on Monday". I'm not going to the Office of Fair Trading over $3 -- life is... More

A must to visit for anyone that enjoys going to the cinema. It is a charming little place right by the beach. It's a wonderful place to visit, they always have a good selection of movies on and the gift shop at the front us worth a browse.

Avoca Beach Picture Theatre well deserves the many awards it's won nationally for independent cinema. Not only does it run a great arthouse line-up, it manages to garner the best of the mainstream flicks. On top of that, it has a regular program of live theatre and music - a wonderful cultural hub for the Central Coast. A real must-visit.

Great variety of quality movies in a wonderful old nostalgic theatre. Saw story about Charles Dickens, The Invisible Woman, here and it was the perfect theatre to watch such a period story . A historical stort in a wonderful historical theatre.
