What a pleasure it was to visit this cinema. Many old features and the building has retained the charm from 1940s. Prices are far lower than those of the big cinemas. Very comfy. Place to take the kids.

I was planing for a 3D movie as it said on their website but when I got there they said they haven't had a 3D movie in ages. But after all I got to see the movie I wanted.

We were staying in Airlie Beach, and decided to drive to Bowen for a movie. We were greeted by a delightful gentleman, who was lovely and very helpful. We really enjoyed our movie here, and would definitely go back. 5 stars.

Located in the Queens Beach area. Parking is in the surrounding streets. Friendly staff, interesting exhibits. Good for a small regional theatre.

Quaint little twin cinema in Bowen hosts one large cinema and a much smaller cinema. Love the blockbuster posters lining the halls with big star autographs. Tickets are good prices ($12 for adult, $9 for child, kids free under 3 y.o) Popcorn, snacks & drinks...More

It has become an ongoing pleasure to drive up from the Whitsundays, pay for our Senior's tickets and watch the latest movies in this Art Deco theatre from another time.
