Enjoy a little luxury at the movies
If a trip to the movies during the school holidays sounds about as enticing as an overdue visit to the dentist, I have some great news for you.
You don't have to put up with the crowds any longer and you can forget about having that awkward conversation with someone sitting in your reserved seat. Instead, you can relax in the knowledge that there is a place where you can enjoy a movie in peace and luxury, without all of the usual distractions, and without costing you an arm and a leg.
Welcome to Hoyts Lux. Offering a premium cinema experience where you can enjoy and indulge in a little luxury at the cinema.
Hoyts Lux offers quality over quantity with the cinemas seating around 30 - 40 people in luxurious reclining chairs. The recliners are large in size and come with foot rests, good sized armrests and large cup holders for all.

There were only five rows in our cinema at Wetherill Park and as there is a lot of distance between the rows so you don't have the issue of trying to see over the head of someone in front of you and there is no-one behind you kicking or bumping into your seat. Cinema bliss! In fact, during our session, we could not see or hear anyone else from where we were sitting, in row C in the centre of the cinema.
When you book online you can choose your own seats, just be aware that row A is very close to the cinema screen.
While some Hoyts Lux cinemas offer a private lounge and bar area and free popcorn and drink included in your ticket price, the Wetherill Park cinema does not include these options.
However, Wetherill Park does offer in-seat ordering if you arrive 15 minutes prior to the session commencement. You can then select from the menu and your food will be delivered to your seat. We did not order any food from the Lux menu on our visit. To view the Wetherill Park menu please click here.
At the Hoyts Lux session, we attended the tickets cost $22 per adult and $17 per child which is comparable to a standard movie ticket elsewhere. Given the comparable ticket prices, I would definitely choose this option again over a standard movie session.
