Well done Avoca Beach Picture Theatre for continuing to offer great mainstream movies as well as the more unusual and interesting. This theatre has redefined what 'going to the pictures' can mean. They have wonderful theme nights based around cultures, music and international events. They stream in live opera and theatre from around the world. They even have live shows... More

What I like about the theatre is the seats and just everything else. The ice-creams, the champagne and being able to take my glass into the theatre and sit like an adult and be able to enjoy my drink without it being in a plastic glass or not being allowed to have it at all. The one on one service,... More

I love to go and see movies at this beautiful cinema, along with other special events.It is always delightful,and it's historical beauty reminds me of my childhood trips to the 'pictures', before the big impersonal companies moved in and took over the little people.Here you will get personable service from the owners of the cinema and their few friendly staff,...

This is a fantastic example of what you can do with a single screen cinema if you can just keep it relevant to the patrons. The prices remain reasonable ($12 adult), the snack bar has really good homemade biscuits on offer, along with traditional choc tops and a few select sweets. And the movies it shows area a mix of...

I agree: what a great little theatre. Great movies and live events, and a meeting place for locals. But go there quickly if you want to experience it. Because unfortunately the owners have lodged a development application to turn it into a five screen multiplex as part of a huge four storey development. The theatre as we know it will... More

Dont miss the gift shop for quirky gifts that you dont see in other stores. The staff are always very obliging. Get your next dose of culture at Avocoa Theatre.

Can't believe i am the first to review this. It is the perfect theatre - lovely old theatre with the best movies with passionate owners who deliver the best quality. This is so unlike the mulitplex complexes where I struggle to find a movie to watch,but at Avoca there is rarely a week here that does not have a quality... More
