Venue Hire


The Tivoli Cinema is available as a venue for your private function or fundraiser event. We specialize in creating unique movie experiences and we like to go that extra step to ensure your event is that little bit special. Listed below are a number of options we can help you with, and if you have any extra requirements, please talk to us.

Your Event as a Private Functionseats

The Tivoli available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for private bookings (daytime and evenings). On these days we can offer you a reduced rate if you book out one, two or all of our auditoriums. We have a 52 seat auditorium, 47 seat auditorium and a 41 seat auditorium, and depending on the film choice, we can show the same movie in all auditoriums to create a larger seat option.

We also have our new upstairs Bar open, this caters for up to 50 - 60 people. Hire the Bar for a private gathering with or without having a movie option.  Please ring to discuss as prices vary.

Your Event as a Fundraiser

Fundraising has never been simpler! Book either one or two of our theatres on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday (daytime and evenings) and receive a reduced rate, work out how much you want to make, and add it to your ticket price. You can of course run raffles on the night and spot prizes. We can contribute with a couple of complimentary tickets to help out. It's a lot less work than a sausage sizzle and a great night out for all.

Weekend night booking will not be at areduced rate. See below for proces.

Block Booking

If you are a smaller group or organization you can place a block booking with us. In some cases you can choose your own movie, however, this is not always possible, and the session would also be open to the public. Alternatively you can choose any session off the current timetable. Standard rates would apply. Block bookings for Tuesdays and Wednesdays $12 seat for 20 or more people. Block bookings for Weekends $13.50 a seat for 20 or more people.


You can choose a movie from our current schedule, or we may be able to get a film that is of particular interest to your group. We will discuss options with you and also what time is suitable. We always have new films coming up, so you can even create your own premiere! 

Refreshments & Finger Food

The Tivoli has a superb range of quality wines and beers available over the counter and we also serve excellent espresso coffees and hot chocolates. Our range of fine cakes and nibbles are also at your disposal. We also offer Cheese and Antipasto Platters,  just ask when you come in.

Multi Media

Our upstairs function room has been fitted with a projector and screen, for power point presentations.  Please enquire on the hire of this equipment.
