This picture palace is a pretty picture in itself, as you’ll know if you’ve ever scrolled through either Time Out’s list of the world’s most beautiful cinemas, or Flicks' list of Australia’s best.
The reason for its enduring acclaim is obvious from street level: jewel-toned neon glows down from the art deco facade to the bright marquee, outlining every film coming to its six screens. Each cinema has its own title and you can take a peep via virtual tour here: The Rex, Arcadia, Lounge, Orpheum, Walsh, and Hayden.
Although the 1925 Wurlitzer pipe organ in the main Orpheum auditorium is a must-see, any theatre makes your moviegoing into a transcendent outing. All that old-world glamour doesn’t necessarily set you back, either: student tickets are six bucks on a Monday.
Getting Here, Map & Parking
Spofforth Street, Gerard Street, and Military Road bus stops are each a two-minute walk away from the Hayden Orpheum. The T1 train line takes 20 minutes to get from St Leonards stop to this grand cinema.

Limited parking is available behind the threatre on Parraween street or opposite it at Cremorne Town Centre. The cinema advises arriving early to your session time to find parking.
