Sydney is home to so many cinemas, both iconic and off-the-beaten-path, that it can be hard to dub one as the best cinema in the city. What qualifies a cinema for the “best” category, anyway? Is it its varied selection of both mainstream and art house films? Is it decor that clings to the quaint charm of old Hollywood cinemas or innovation that boasts the latest achievements in sound and screen technology? Or maybe it’s just about offering the best hot, buttery popcorn in town, and the most comfortable seats you can sink into for an hour or two.
The criteria seems infinite and is often different from person to person. In your opinion, which is the best cinema Sydney has to offer and why?
