A trip to see a movie here is like stepping back into a classier time. Old fashioned service in a classic building. Special events are hosted here too. A date at the movies is special here!

The Hayden Orpheum is a must do cinema complex. If you go to the biggest cinema to see a movie they have an organist pop up and perform before the movie on weekends. The whole place is an exercise in nostalgia but with good picture quality and excellent sound. They serve pop tops,popcorn and drinks so all traditional movie food... More

Great theatre, average movie. Popcorn is salty and the ice creams are cold. Must try the champagne tickets

The Orpheum theatre is a delight with its art deco architecture. It also shows a huge range of films, some of which are not available elsewhere. If you haven't visited and enjoy art deco architecture, go now!

A beautiful cinema making a change from the hussel and bussel of the Multiplex cinemas. Very clean and the decor is a step back to a bygone era, but still all the mod cons in terms of sound and vision. It's our local cinema and if it's not showing the movie we want, we'd rather wait than go to one... More

It's worth going to the Orpheum just for the architecture Everything from the ushers to the decor takes you back when "Going to the Movies" was a social event The program is electric but with real highlights such as the recent Hitchcock festival and David Stratton's choice of best English movies Another great feature is that it screens the Met...

One of the last remaining picture palaces in all of Sydney which shows a range of films not just the usual mulpiflex fodder. There are a number of cinemas and interesting one offs such as director's nights which are a must.

I went with my cousin to watch a movie out of pure laziness at first, because I didn't want to go all the way into town. In the end, though, I'm glad I did. Awesome seating, great sound and authentic decor makes the experience worth every cent.

If you've never been to the Hayden Orpheum Theatres in Mosman, you've never truly been to the pictures. The glorious brass and velvet surroundings and the excellent staff, really make movies come to life!

It was a lovely surprise to find out this cinema was an art deco gem during the recent Sydney Film Festival. From the outside you get the sense that this is somewhere special and then the entry continues to charm. Fortunately our film was in the main cinema which I now understand is the original one. Full of art deco... More
