Cinemas in Brisbane


Cinemas in Brisbane are a mix of independent establishments and shopping center cinemas. Some cinemas are categorized as either small or large. The former consists of three theaters while the latter has fifteen theaters. Here are some of the most recommended, and probably among the most unique, cinema houses in the metro.

Are you in search for a unique way of viewing your favorite film away from the usual dark theater of the cinema houses or the comfort of your living room (your home theater may not support your craving for something

new anyway)? Located at Jacob's Well Road, Yatala Twin Drive-In

Theatre is a sure subversion from today's commercial viewing entertainment. What could be more fantastic than watching films literally under the night sky? Watching movies would then turn out to be more

of a social event than a personal escape, sending watchers bringing their own blankets, mattresses, chairs and tents. However, don't forget those bug sprays because you really need them.

Opened in 1974, the Yatala Twin Drive-In Theater is Australia's most modern theater, showcasing the latest blockbusters and movie releases,

with twenty drive-in theatres that can collectively accommodate 575 car spots. Aside from the regular screenings, Yatala Drive includes Movie

Marathons in its programming. Marathons usually happen on a Sunday before a national public holiday, featuring an interesting line-up of the latest films.

It also holds advance screenings and previews for certain blockbuster movies. In addition, the drive-in theater also features a 50's style American diner, wherein life-size models of Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and James Dean accompany watchers on their way for their next decadent meal.

Film enthusiasts who dream of seeing their favorite independent or cult films in the big screen need not fret because The Globe in Fortitude Valley is

open to savor their needs. The Globe Theater is actually the only licensed cult cinema in Brisbane. However, viewing is only limited to members of the Odyssey Creative Productions Association, however if you know someone or if you are a friend of a member, then you can ask him or her to be his or guest for a typical screening, whereas if given the chance, you can also apply for a membership!

The Globe was originally named as the "Valley Twin" when it was built in the late 1970's. It is composed of two theaters, one of which is a Dolby-equipped 195-seater, while the other one is composed of a grand stage adorned with the best of sound and lighting equipments. Much of the films that have been screening in The Globe are cult classics, and people who want to relive these classics in the big screen will surely have the best of their time in The Globe. The Globe's next film screening is composed of Michael Anderson's 1976 futuristic film Logan's Run and Jim Shairman's 1975 musical comedy film The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
