Great location in the heart of vibrant Newtown. Cinema shows both mainstream and offbeat movies. Very clean and seating with plenty of legroom compared to elsewhere. Staff were friendly and helpful. Local area is full of eateries and other attractions.

When you're tired of sticky floors and overcrowded theatres, head to Dendy. They offer comfy seats with movies ranging from the latest blockbuster, to foreign, docos, and arthouse fare.
