Old-School Cinemas in Australia
If you’re looking for a quality movie-watching experience or the perfect first date venue, why not think past the large commercial chains and go for something a bit smaller and more memorable? Independent cinemas are a valiantly struggling sector of the industry. With retro and vintage coming back into vogue, why not indulge in the cosy, history-filled seats of a local, independent cinema? There are lots of savings to be made on food and ticket prices, plus you may even stumble upon films not available anywhere else.
