Event Cinemas was founded in 1913 so it’s among the oldest chains in Australia. Through the years, many changes in its structure, ownership and name occurred beginning from the establishment of The Combine, the result of a merger between The Greater J.D. Williams Amusement Co and The General Film Company of Australasia.
Today, Event Cinemas is under the umbrella of Event Hospitality and Entertainment, its parent company.
Ultimate Cinema Experience Guaranteed
In Australia, Event Cinemas consist of more than 50 venues, many of which are in large shopping centers. Every theater features multiple screens with different movies shown on them. The movies change on a weekly schedule although extensions can also be made based on public demand, as is the case for blockbusters.
Event Cinemas faces stiff competition aside from dealing with a declining cinema admissions in the country. But the chain continues to triumph over these challenges through innovative offerings, such as premium cinema experiences (e.g., Gold Class), larger VMAX screens, and alternative content. The latter includes sports broadcasts like football, Bollywood films, opera shows, live gaming, and comedy events, as well as independent film festivals.
Gold Class is touted as the ultimate in luxury cinema experience, thanks to its premium facilities and amenities. Gold Class theaters are equipped with wall-to-wall high-definition screens and world-class sound system that make for an immersive experience. The audiovisual system has a surround quality to it that makes it seem like the audience is part of the movie, not just spectators.
The luxurious chairs have wide armrests and wide seats for maximum comfort, as well as equipped with a full reclining feature. Leg room isn’t an issue in Gold Class because of the wide spaces between seats; stretch your legs and feel at home in the theater!
Gold Class customers can also relax in the dedicated lounge before or after a movie. You can eat your meals or snacks in the lounge or ask the waiter to bring the food and drinks to your seat. You have a wide range of choices in the snack menu, as well as an eclectic mix of beers, wines, and cocktails.
Interested individuals can also buy the Ultimate Gold Class Package for 2. It includes two tickets to a movie of your choice, 2 glasses of your choice in the house wine menu, and 5 items from the small plates menu.
The VMAX theaters are just as impressive, too, especially for the price. The large screens highlight the details on the movies and the sound system is an audiophile’s dream. The food choices are varied, too, with concessions stands like Sizzler, Dome, Hans Café, and Bollywood Restobar in the premises. The seats are designed with the customers’ comfort in mind, thus, the wide armrests, plush upholstery, and ample leg room.
Event Cinemas has several promotions that make it more affordable to go to the movies frequently. For example, you can book a ticket to a Gold Class movie at a discounted rate on Mondays (i.e., $25; terms and conditions apply). Discounted rates for children and seniors are also available; proof of age will be required for the discounts to apply.
There are even deals on the food. The Dinosaurs Sliders Deal, for example, includes the 3-way sliders, fries and a beverage (e.g., ale, house wine, or soft drink). The chain often offers food and drink promotions, too, based on the movies being screened for the week, aside from the promotions in the concessions stands.
The amenities are well-maintained, too. The restrooms have plenty of stalls, as well as stocked with toiletries and cleaned regularly by the crew. The parking area in the standalone theaters are spacious, well-lighted, and staffed by security guards, too. The lobbies are always clean, too.
The ticket prices aren’t the cheapest in town but since you’re paying for a quality movie experience, perhaps among the best you will ever have, it’s well worth it. Take note, too, that the prices will differ between shows based on several factors including the type of show offered.
Live sports events broadcasts, for example, will have different ticket prices from mainstream movies from Hollywood. This will likely be the case for price differences between standup comedy shows and opera shows, or Bollywood and Hollywood movies, and live gaming and film festivals. There may be discounts on special events for certain cohorts, such as seniors.
Online booking is highly recommended because of the long lines that often happen at the box office. An extra charge, albeit nominal, will be imposed on online transactions.
