Cheap cin­ema tick­ets

Movies cost a bomb in Syd­ney – but not here.

Time Out (Sydney) - - Cheap Sydney - By Nick Dent

THE TYP­I­CAL FILM ticket costs $22 in Syd­ney – even more if it’s in 3D – but there are op­por­tu­ni­ties around town for ev­ery­one to get into cin­e­mas af­ford­ably. Just head to the places be­low and don’t ar­rive hun­gry – you def­i­nitely don’t want to be shelling out for an over­priced pop­corn or drink.

Du­maresq Street Cin­ema

Syd­ney’s cheap­est cin­ema is still the Du­maresq Street Cin­ema in Camp­bell­town. All tick­ets for all ses­sions are just $7.50 – less than a third of the price of Syd­ney city cin­e­mas. à 2-4 Du­maresq St, Camp­bell­town 2560. www.du­maresqstreetcin­ema.com.au.

Dendy New­town

King Street’s pop­u­lar mul­ti­plex has a few deals go­ing. Tues­days, 2D movies are $13.50 all day, while if you’re a stu­dent your tick­ets are just $8 on Wed­nes­day. If it’s within a week of your birth­day you can get a ticket for just $1 – nice. à 261 King St, New­town 2042. www.dendy.com.au.

Hay­den Or­pheum Pic­ture Palace

With­out doubt the grand­est cin­ema in Syd­ney, the Or­pheum has some grand dis­counts on Tues­days, with the top price for tick­ets $13.50 (or $16.50 for a 3D film). They also have 6 Af­ter 6 Stu­dent Mon­days, which is $6 for stu­dent tick­ets af­ter 6pm ($9 for 3D movies). à 380 Mil­i­tary Rd, Cre­morne 2090. www. or­pheum.com.au.
