Films with a serving of wine and popcorn (by Palace Cinemas)


Our biggest cinema chains, Event Cinemas and Hoyts, have dozens of theatres throughout Queensland. They feature all the latest blockbusters, with 3D and VMAX technology for immersive audio visuals, enjoyed in contoured seats.

The convenience comes at a price though, with Event Cinema's Myer Centre Saturday session adult tickets costing $19, children's tickets at $14 and student at $15.50. VMAX adds $3 to the ticket price. Hoyts Sunnybank is slightly more expensive.

With popcorn and drink combos starting at $14.50, you'll part with $35 for a movie night with snacks. Save some cash with cheaper movie tickets at these cinemas throughout Brisbane.


Cineplex - Balmoral, Hawthorne, South Bank, Victoria Point, Nerang and Redback
Adult tickets at Cineplex cinemas cost only $8.50, with children's tickets at only $4.50 and student at $6.50.

You can save even more on weekdays before 6pm and Sundays after 4pm but the best price is only $6.50 for any session on Tuesdays.

You'll need to register for a free account to book tickets online but once you've signed up, you'll get updates on special discounts and upcoming films.

Book tickets or view the cinema locations at Cineplex.


Yatala Drive-In
See the silver screen through your clean windshield, swapping theatre seats for car seats and the gigantic cinema speakers for car radio surround sound.

At Yatala, your $15 ticket gives you access to a movie broadcast in a field instead of a theatre. Stay for a 2nd (or 3rd) film and pay only $10 per movie.

If your pick is a lemon, you can vote with your wheels, driving to another of the 3 movie fields instead.

During public holidays, you can settle in for movie marathons - 4 latest releases shown through the evening for only $26.

Visit the Yatala Drive-In website to book.

Palace Cinemas - Barracks, Centro
On most days, you'll pay a premium for the Spanish, handcrafted semi-reclining seats at the luxurious Palace Cinemas in Barracks, with adult tickets at $19.

But on Mondays, you can enjoy the experience for only $9.50, leaving spare cash for cocktails, handmade choc tops and olive oil popcorn from the bar.

Centro is even cheaper, with $15 general admission and $8.50 Monday tickets.

Both cinemas welcome Movie Club members with $12 tickets for any session.

Palace also has special events, including international film festivals and theme nights, including a recent Harry Potter marathon.

Visit the Palace Cinemas website to book.


Dendy Cinemas - Portside
Dendy is another upmarket option, and while the standard $19.50 ticket prices are on par with the big chains, you can sneak a saving with $12 tickets for all Tuesday sessions.

Like the Palace, you can take refreshments from the licensed bar with you into the theatre.

If you're a regular, join the Dendy Club for $24 for 2 years to enjoy $12.50 tickets for any session, 7 days a week.

For British theatre buffs, skip the flight to England and watch productions from the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre Live.

Visit the Dendy Cinemas website to book.
