How does the seating work?

Cinema gates open at 6:30 pm, with most films starting at 7:45 pm.

Bring your own seats or rugs, or hire a bean bag lounge. There’s a designated grassed area for different seating heights so that all audience members can see the screen.

You can hire a bean bag lounge online, or purchase one on the night if there are some available. Each bean bag is $7 (with an online booking fee of $0.50).

The ECU Joondalup venue has a limited amount of sling chairs which are available free-of-charge on a first-come, first-served basis.

Can I buy food and drinks? Can I bring my own?

You can bring your own food or choose from a selection of food available for sale at each cinema. Gates open at 6:30 pm (most films start at 7:45 pm), so you have plenty of time for a picnic.

Pizzas can be ordered online ahead of time, or you can pick up a pie or sausage roll at each venue. Just make sure you pre-order your pizza online by 5:45 p.m. on your screening day. Each venue also offers a cheese pack which comes with a selection of cheese, crackers, and more. You can also grab popcorn, ice cream, and other sweets to enjoy during your movie. 

While you can’t bring your own alcohol, you can buy wine, beer, and soft drinks from the bar at each cinema. Coffee and other hot drinks are also available for purchase.

How do the cinemas give back to the community?

Since they were established in 1997 (as Movies by Burswood), Telethon Community Cinemas has raised almost $12 million dollars for charitable organisations benefiting WA children.

Its current charity partners include 12 Buckets, the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre, Rebound WA, HorsePower Hills, and the Edmund Rice Camps.
