Metro Arts’ Lumen Room was the original Dendy Cinemas in Brisbane, and was one of the most happening joints in the city. We converted the cinema into a theatre space in the early 00’s but in 2016 we needed it back to its original condition! We tracked down the original seating, and it is now a retro style space that can seat up to 115 people!

The facilities allow for personalized ticketing, a bar, or your own alcohol under the supervision of a duty manager. With highly competitive prices, it’s perfect for intimate screenings or student films!
