Film & Art, Guide, Play, Sydney / 1 July 2022

Discover the best spots to watch movies in Sydney on a rainy weekend.

Although lapping it up from your couch watching the latest movies on Netflix, Stan and other streaming networks can be tempting, it certainly isn’t the same as heading into a physical cinema. In fact, we’ve been missing the ritual of popcorn, choc-tops and settling in for a night at the movies. Discover the best boutique cinemas you need to visit in Sydney below!

Golden Age Cinema, Surry Hills

Set in the historic Paramount House building in the heart of Surry Hills, Golden Age is a destination for film buffs. This micro boutique cinema boasts less than 10 rows of seats, making for a truly intimate experience. The best part is that there’s a bar and kitchen open Tuesday to Sunday allowing you to purchase cocktails and seasonal dishes which you can take into the cinema. See what’s playing here.
