Wonderful olde world cinema, arm chairs & blankets... Great films - personal attention... The Cinema is the original old building with heaps of character, carpet & great ablutions. Back row upstairs all sofas - front row downstairs all sofas... Need I say more - it's memorable!

I love taking me kids to the cinema. It is old school but with comfy sofas to sit on and blankets for when it is cold. Such a great atmosphere and reasonably priced too.

Lovely heritage building hosts some of the best movies of the year, catering for all ages and interest groups. Comfy couches and knee rugs and tasty snacks make this a great spot for some relaxing entertainment for visitors and locals. Movies the way it used to be! All this at the lowest prices around.

I love going to the Geraldine cinema, as good as service if not better than anywhere else. The couches give the at home luxury but essential to book them before you go. It's great to that you don't have to travel far to see the latest movies. A real treat for a small town and we'll priced too.

This is a lovely old fashioned cinema. Not what you would expect inside. Upstairs it's like a 1950 cinema Downstairs there are 2 and 3 seater couches which makes it rather comfortable viewing of the film your going to watch.

Old cinema with lots of charm. Step back in time. Great night out on a cold night with sofas to curl up on, get there early or book to get the best seats in the house. Friendly staff and not expensive.

I have had a long association with the Geraldine Cinema with private hiring for our annual vintage caravan rally. With old couches and granny blankets you can snuggle in to watch the latest flicks or an old classic. The tuck shop serves all the necessaries for that "old school" cinema experience so lacking with the multiplex. And the prices are... More

A very old cinema with cozy couches that's been around for almost 100 years. They even provide blankets in case you are cold. Popcorn available . Fair size screen.
