WHERE TO MEET - The group will gather upstairs in the cinema's Coffee Lounge, then head into the cinema a few minutes before the scheduled screening time (otherwise we risk getting bad seats!). The Coffee Lounge bar serves a nice range of hot and cold drinks, as well as some delicious sweets! Please regroup in the Coffee Lounge after the movie, and we'll go from there to a nearby restaurant for dinner and drinks.
TICKETS - Being the opening week, this is likely to be a busy nite! To avoid the hassle of lining up at the box office, it's recommended that you buy your tickets online prior to the event and collect them at the automated ticket machine in the cinema foyer. PLEASE NOTE - Cineplex places a limit on the number of online ticket sales. If you miss-out, simply come a little early and buy one at the box office.
DINNER & DRINKS AFTER - Let's make a night of it! If you'd like to join us for drinks and a bite to eat after the movie, you're most welcome!. There are plenty of excellent eateries very close to the cinema, all with reasonable prices.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT - Please CLICK HERE for details.
FREE PARKING for up to 4 hours is available under the cinema via Ernest St, close to the Grey St intersection. At busy times there can be a delay in entering the carpark, because the system is automated and only allows a car into the carpark when another car leaves. Just be patient, you WILL eventually get in! Remember to have your parking ticket validated at the box office when you leave the cinema. Be careful not the exceed the 4-hour parking limit, as a hefty $35 penalty applies.
