Somerville Auditorium Reviews
Taking in a film at the Somerville can be a good but you have to watch out for the inconsiderate behaviour of management. You can get to to the cinema early and wait in the line to get a good seat. Ho... more »
Somerville Auditorium is an outdoor cinema, framed by mature trees. It's a great venue to escape the Perth summer heat, which can be oppressive. It's also a venue for the Festival of Perth film series... more »
Lovely venue, nice lighting and ambience. Coffee was great, two food trucks to choose from. The icecream tubs had melted at some stage and had been refrozen again so was icy. I suspect that’s a first world problem though. Friendly and helpful staff. The seats can be a little uncomfortable, suggest you take a pillow and potentially a blanket. There’s not as much room for bean bags except to the right of the screen and in a small section at the front which is probably a little too close to the screen. Enter via the music hall area. Lots of parking and it’s free after 5pm (at the time of this post). If you get there too late they offer plastic chairs to sit at the back. A small walk to the amenities. Could be more signage from the road but that’s hardly an issue.
Get there at least 15min prior to gates opening. A suggestion. Don't oversell the venue. People shouldn't need to line up prior to opening, so as not to sit in the dirt. We showed up 28 minutes after gates opened, still over an hour and a half before the film begun and it was nearly only standing room left, with dozens upon dozens of people still coming in. Bit of a rip off. Lovely surroundings though. Just a shame we couldn't stay.
