Hey there, Surfers Paradise

Hey there, Surfers Paradise

We’re opening a new cinema in the heart of Surfers Paradise! 

The 12 screen cinema complex is set to open as a part of the X Galaxy Centre redevelopment in late-2019.

After the closure of the Hoyts complex in 1995, our new location, situated on the corner of Surfers Paradise Boulevard and Elkhorn Avenue, represents the return of the cinematic experience to Surfers Paradise for the first time in almost 23 years.

Boasting innovative interiors with multiple lounge and bar areas and sweeping city views, the cinema will act as a central hub for locals and tourists alike for a pre-film catch up or post-film debrief.

Our newest location will show the best quality mainstream and new release films. We will also bring our trademark collection of international film festivals to the Gold Coast.

Set with frontage onto Surfers Paradise Boulevard, the cinema will be surrounded by a plethora of retailers, restaurants and bars which will contribute to the strip’s lively atmosphere. The precinct is serviced by the new Light Rail tram, along with easy road access and adjacent parking.

More updates to come!
