We actually came in here twice, the first time looking for something to eat. To be honest all the foods outlets seem to be of the take away/fast food variety so we were not very impressed. That said I guess it has been turned into a cinema venue upstairs, so maybe that's the crowd they attract. The second time was... More

Well known for the village cinema's ! Good quality, big screens, and the newest movies. We parked our car in the Como building parking. After 4 you will pay a fixed price of 11 dollars. There's also a parking near the jam factory... Lots of choice !

Not impressed we showed up just after 11PM walked a great distance to get here and the man apologise for closing early although there was 8/10 staff at the bar having a drink.

Sunday night is $10 martini night. The friendly attentive staff explained all of the martinis. They also have a great wine and other drinks list. They also have a... More

We went to see the movies as a family at the Jam Factory. Due to different tastes we saw two different films at very similar times. The number of cinemas made this very easy and the choice of bars and food outlets were terrific. It was easy to get there by tram and Chapel St presented lots of choices for... More

Good night overall. Gold class is a little expensive, but well worth it as an occasional treat. Strangely enough, they do not accept American Express, despite one of the first screen ads being for American Express

Three of us were given free drink cards for this bar from Village Cinemas. When we went there we were greeted with nail clippings in our drinks! We couldn't believe it! How disgusting. For a bar that's just opened, they've done pretty poor on the hygiene side of things. Never went back again. Plus the manager was quite arrogant. We... More

With plenty of eateries, Target and a 7 cinema Village complex The Jam Factory is a great experience. It's clean with plenty of space. Lots to do. The cinema had comfortable seating with friendly and pleasant staff. Worth visiting.

Attended the Village Cinemas here. The Cinemas are good (went to Gold Class). A nice place to get along to for movies, although Village one of the big chains it's not in a massive shopping centre, Visit was a on Sunday and the parking was inexpensive and easy, as Chapel Street can be very busy. The shops here aren't necessarily... More
