If you’re ideal date night is a romantic dinner and movie, why not also add a breezy beachside location to it with the latest addition to The Strand with Cinebar Coolangatta! The silver screen now has the smell of refreshing sea salt surrounding it as the Gold Coast recently became the second home for Cinebar, almost 18 years after the family-owned, fully Queensland business opened its first cinema in Rosalie! Boasting itself as Australia’s largest first-class cinema experience, Cinebar Coolangatta is located on the second floor inside The Strand, a buzzing shopping and dining precinct that is directly across the road from Coolangatta Beach.
And first-class is the best way to describe what this cinema has to offer. The blockbuster treatment began with a very warm and polite welcome from the staff, particularly the Location Manager, Adam, who was more than happy to discuss the 5 state-of-the-art cinemas, all with large leather reclining seats so you can enjoy each movie in pure comfort.
Even better than that, you won’t have to leave your seat for food as Cinebar Coolangatta delivers restaurant quality service right to your seat, so you don’t miss a single second of your film. And this menu is one to die for! With a focus on Asian cuisine, including sharing platters with duck spring rolls, BBQ pork buns, and veggie gyoza, or main meals such as chicken Thai green curry, or sizzling Mongolian beef, the food on offer isn’t just delicious, but it allows you as an audience member to combine your dinner and movie into one easy and delicious outing!
With seating designed to have your food at a level in which you can comfortably consume it, it’s irresistible to turn down the selection of tasty meals on offer. If you’re not feeling like Asian cuisine, don’t stress, because the Cinebar renowned pizzas are also to die for! Whether you’re craving the Meat Me In St Louis, or the Chicken Pesto McFly, along with loads of other hilariously movie-pun-named pizzas, there is sure to be something that will tackle your cravings.
Of course, every good meal needs to be washed down with an equally good drink, and Cinebar Coolangatta has you covered with a gigantic list of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to choose from. Wines, beers, sparklings and spirits run free on this drink’s menu. For the beer connoisseurs, 8 beers are available on tap, along with a further 10 in bottles or cans, from all around the country and world. And wine lovers’ toughest decision at the movies will be choosing whether they want an Opawa Pinot Noir or a Redbank King Valley Prosecco!
However, if you’re feeling a little fancy, then you can also choose from 9 signature cocktails, ranging from the refreshing Aperol Spritz, all the way to an Old Fashioned, and everything gin, rum and tequila in between. The friendly staff seemed very happy to accommodate to all drinking styles and choices in order to perfect your movie-watching experience. And be on the watch out for Cinebar’s themed foods and cocktails that they frequently release in conjunction with a blockbuster release!
While the food is amazing, let’s not forget what you’re really at Cinebar Coolangatta for… the movies! While you’re comfortable in the large recliner seats, devouring delicious meals and drinks, the real magic is happening in the projection box. All 5 cinemas at Cinebar Coolangatta feature the latest, 4ht generation laser projection technology to ensure that all movies are being played in the crispest, highest definition possible with picture-perfect clarity. Laser projection has been used in cinemas for over a decade now, but Cinebar’s dedication to constantly evolving with the times to show movies the way they’re intended is on full display with these new cinemas and projectors. Even the screens are a specific low-gain, flat white so as not to get hot spots and laser speckle effects that can disrupt the viewing experience.
Cinebar Coolangatta is offering a deluxe service, both with the cinema technology they have, the friendly staff, and the outstanding array of tasty foods and beverages. So, you may think the price tag that comes with that would be rather hefty. How does $20 for an adult ticket sound? That’s competitive pricing to many major cinema retailers just for standard sessions without recliners or food service! And with no meals costing over $25 (and under $30 for the tasting platters), Cinebar Coolangatta is a must when it comes to affordable, and luxurious date night offerings.
