Good value with a food court and restaurants just outside

Convenient location with plenty of parking in westfield. Don't forget to bring your parking ticket in with you and scan it in the cinema for an extra hour free parking.

A good quality theatre with nice seats and good sound. Large screens and good value ticket prices. Not the flashiest of cinemas but for the price = excellent value

A great movie cinema I have been thus far. The Titan XC cinema is mind blowing and fantastic. the sound and the screen size and the seats are worth every cent you pay for.

Great way to watch a movie, reclining lounge chairs, alcoholic drinks for age appropriate people, with service throughout the movie, ect drinks food hot and cold. Such a fabulous idea.

Went to watch Suicide Squad and the experience was very enjoyable. The seats were comfortable and the theatre was clean and staff very friendly. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

Enjoyed the movie'Ab Fab' with my husband at an afternoon session. Comfortable seats, friendly staff, but whenever we go to the movies it seems there is popcorn etc all over the carpet. Since the carpet is a dark colour, I feel as if the foyer area and hallway is unclean because it is dotted with food crumbs.

Took the grand kids to the movies during the school holidays. It was very busy. A stop at the candy bar cost a fortune! We had good seats and sound quality was great. We all enjoyed the movie. I would recommend Reading Cinemas.

Went to the Gold Lounge. The venue and seating was great. The food was average. The sliders were ok and good value at $10 on a half price special. The chicken and mushroom gozleme were tastless. All was hot though. The sundae came in too late (only 10 min before the end of the movie). But what was the real... More

As a Charlestown resident I regularly visit the Reading Cinema located in Charlestown. The cinema is situated inside Charlestown Square shopping centre. So not on,y can you go to a movie you can shop, dine pick up something for dinner

Now that the prices are reasonable, $9 for adults and $7 for kids, reading cinemas is the best place to go for a film. The seats are comfortable, the cinemas are clean and the selection of films and times are alway great. My number one choice for seeing a movie in Newcastle and the hunter.
