  • I think Gold Class is expensive, especially if you also order food.

  • We have a local Hoyts cinema that offers Gold Class seating for normal ticket prices. It’s extremely popular. The chairs recline and are very comfortable and you’re not too close to other people – great for social distancing.

  • I have a friend who always does it to treat her children. I don’t have the money for it but can imagine it’s lovely. Probably it’s a bit like a first class flight and how good would that be on a long overnight flight ?

  • They’re probably over priced, movie tickets in general are over priced. But it is fun and a little indulgent. If you can, wait til there’s a movie you really want to see and treat yourself

  • I love gold class. Comfy recliners whilst watching the movie. In SA Reading cinemas have dropped the price to $20 a ticket but this no longer includes the drink and nibbles. Still a great experience and treat.

  • I love Gold Class, it’s such a wonderful treat for date night. My husband and I usually use them for movies we have been really excited to see and didn’t want the standard experience where people talk through and ruin it. haha I also love that when we are having a date night it allows us to fit dinner in with the movie and that’s less time the grandparents have to stay at our house at night babysitting.

  • My daughter and I tried Gold Class about a month ago and we really enjoyed the comfortable reclining chairs. We didn’t end up ordering any food, and the movie wasn’t great, but overall I’m glad we tried it. I think it’s a bit too expensive to do often.

  • I really love it – just the space issue – I hate sitting really close to strangers, and there is nothing worse than having a big head in front of you, or feet in your back so I am all for it! The food is crap and very overpriced, but you can order food from the canteen/kiosk menu and they will bring that in to you too

  • you will probably enjoy it. ask the cinema what you get.

  • My kids gave me a Gold class movie this year and basically you are sitting on more comfy seats and you are able to eat and drink with a small table in front of you while you watch a movie . I think it is good on a special occasion to spoil yourself , but I wouldn’t be able to make a habit of it as it is not cheap . Just to arouse your curiosity go to one and see for yourself . You will feel the environment is different from the normal cinemas .

  • It’s great for a treat- cost gets you your seat and thats it- they do serve food and drinks through the movie but you need to purchase beforehand, and you tell them when you want everything- eg. Drinks at the start of the movie, meals at half-way etc.- Wouldn’t make it a regular thing though as it can be pretty costly.

  • Smaller cinema, larger seats, food and drinks served during movie. It is a nice experience but I don’t think it is worth the amount you pay

  • Thanks for the responses everyone. I’d like to try Gold Class at least once. I was hoping that perhaps a drink and some nibbles might be included in the ticket price.

  • My husband and I go occasionally, it’s worth it. For the comfy chairs, the service, the yummy food and a pretty much guarantee it won’t be full of kids making a heap of noise.

  • This will be a Christmas holiday treat! Thanks for the idea!
