History of Village Cinemas
Village Cinemas in Australia has come a long way since its first location was established in the eastern suburb of Melbourne – Croydon. Back in 1954, Roc Kirby through Village Roadshow established Village Cinemas as one of the first drive-in movie theatres in the country.
Kirby was already an experienced operator of indoor movie theatres but felt the push to head outside was key in growing the company further. Originally, the drive-in theatre had a huge capacity for 454 cars, meaning over 1,500 people could drive in to watch a movie.
During the course of its life, a swimming pool and go-kart track were added to the theatre’s facilities. A motel facing the theatre was also developed by Kirby’s company nearby.
Through the course of the 1950s, the company expanded to over 27 locations in Victoria and Tasmania. Indoor cinemas were added to the companies portfolio during their further interstate expansion in the 1960s.
In 1967, the company made the move to enter the film distribution industry as well, which has now grown to become one of Australia’s largest cinema chains.
Over the course of the next 40 years, the company made multiple efforts to expand its operations internationally. Locations in which Village Cinemas poised to take over included Thailand, Hungary, Malaysia, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, France, United States, and much more.
Today, the only other countries which the cinemas operate as the Village Cinemas brand are Australia, Greece, and Argentina.
Gold Class was the first in luxury movie theatre experiences in Australia. It’s provided at numerous locations in Australia, as well as Argentina Greece. In cinemas which Village use to operate, Gold Class operates under a licence by the new owners. Don’t worry! They all feature the same facilities as the official Gold Class.
If you are able to spare a bit more cash for your movie experience, we highly recommend giving their Gold Class experience a go. It’s truly the ultimate in movie viewing experience in Australia.
Combine luxury reclining seats, bar services, gourmet food on the menu, personal waiter service, relaxing lounge facilities, and state of the art cinema technology, and you’ll be left with Gold Class.
Of course, with all of those extras added on – Villages Gold Class ticket prices are quite a bit higher than the standard movie experience they offer. But hey – if you have the money – why not!?
Some of the options on their menus include:
- Cheese & Fruit Platter – Treat yourself to an abundant array of soft and hard cheese, with a selection of fresh and dried fruit, quince paste, and an assortment of crackers.
- Death by Chocolate – For the chocolate lovers: indulge in the velvety Toblerone cheesecake, rich chocolate obsession ice cream, velvet chocolate mousse, chocolate dipped strawberries and a side of Maltesers.
- Regent Nachos – A generous bowl of crispy crunchy corn chips smothered in melted nacho cheese and warm tangy tomato salsa. served with sides of sour cream and guacamole.
And a whole lot more. Check out a sample of their menu here – Albury’s Gold Class Menu.

Seems like those locations in a Westfield seem to have happier customers! Only just, though.
Let’s take a closer look and see what some specific reviews say:
This Village cinemas is SO MUCH BETTER. After the really needed revamp it has really picked up it’s game. The VMAX is awesome with its new seats. Would have loved to see Dolby Atmos put in. The VPremium cinemas are very good. The seats are very comfy and the VPremium app to order your food is good. It did take awhile but it has just only opened. This has to be the best cinema in all Tasmania. – Leigh Wolf
Not a bad cinema, always clean and the staff are quite happy. Food is great and the seats are quite comfortable. – Tyler Reid
I gave it 5 stars because of the Kids cinemas – V-Junior or Vjnr. They are great. If you have kids up to about 8 I suppose, then try Vjnr I think they’ll love it. It has a slide inside the cinema, they can jump about down the front before the movie starts, it has a break in the middle of movie for any nature calls, and there are three different kinds of seats. Outside, at the doors, are various play areas. Good fun and a good innovation. – Walter Adamson
Some happy customers! Surely not only because Village Cinemas simply provide and overall good movie experience, but because of the low ticket prices they ended up paying as well!
If you’re currently in Victoria or Tasmania and are looking to catch one of the latest films either on a standard screen of the luxurious Gold Class which they offer – we highly recommend you check out Village Cinemas.
They provide a movie experience competitors are struggling to keep up with, especially with the constant upgrading of the latest and greatest state-of-the-art cinema sound and audio technology.
