SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL 2022

Every year we partner with Sydney Film Festival to show a curated selection of films from the Festival program.

As the Festival's only Western Sydney venue, you'll get to experience cinema in our state of the art theatre with great projection and sound quality.

Not only that - the chefs from our in-house restaurant, Bellbird Dining and Bar will be serving up an incredible 2 course dinner menu with a free glass or sparkling if you pre-book!.

If you haven't used your NSW Dine & Discover vouchers, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy your films and pre-film meals for free! Click here for more info.
