This heritage-listed theatre is in a 1940s building that originally served as the head office for Paramount Pictures. A comprehensive restoration has seen it return to its former glory and now, the intimate 60-seat screening room at the Golden Age Cinema is a haven for film buffs. You'll find a line up of cult classics and current blockbusters to Oscar winners, and contenders, and film trivia nights. The adjoining small bar serves an interesting list of wines, beers, cocktails and snacks.

Inner-city suburb Surry Hills is a creative precinct teeming with trendy bars and eateries catering to every taste and whim. Culture vultures flock to its art galleries and monthly flea market, while one-off shops sell everything from designer fashion to fixie bikes.
