PUBLIC TRANSPORT - Public transport to the cinema is very convenient. Please CLICK HERE for further information.
FREE PARKING FOR UP TO 4 HOURS - Be sure to allow extra time if you're using the cinema's underground carpark, as it's often very busy. While there are usually plenty of spaces available, if the carpark is full the machine will only allow you in when a car leaves the carpark. This can mean a wait before gaining access. Parking is free for cinema patrons up to 4 hours, and is accessible via Ernest St, close to the Grey St intersection. Remember to have your parking ticket validated at the box office when you leave the cinema. IMPORTANT! - Be careful not to exceed the 4-hour parking limit, as a hefty $35 penalty applies!

If you park after 4:00pm you will receive parking for a flat rate of $3. Your parking ticket must be validated at the cinema's box office as you leave the cinema complex to receive the discount.
