There are a number of 3D and 4D cinemas in the Brisbane area, but now Redcliffe can boast about its newly opened 7D cinema – Redcliffe Dimensions! Local family, the Thompsons, have brought the 7D cinematic experience to the peninsula after discovering the concept in California when on a family holiday.
What can I expect from a 7D cinema?
Entering their nine-seat cinema is more like entering an amusement park ride. You simply don your glasses, sit down, strap on your seat belt, and get ready for the ride. The short film (between four and 20 minutes in length) begins and you start to feel like you’re part of the action thanks to the moving seats, snow, fog, lightning, rain, wind, bubbles and other special effects. There are films to suit families, kids and teenagers, and you won’t want to stop at one. For younger children, the sound can be turned down so the experience is not too overwhelming. While you’re waiting for your turn in the 7D cinema, Bruce the moving dinosaur and the arcade games with keep restless kids happily occupied.
Celebrating birthdays and other occasions with Redcliffe Dimensions
The Redcliffe Dimensions experience makes for a unique birthday party that kids of all ages will love. Party packages are available, and there is even a mobile 7D cinema that can be hired for offsite parties and events. At the permanent cinema, there’s also a snack bar and an excellent retail store with quirky and fun gifts that are themed around the virtual reality experience. You can even purchase virtual reality goggles that are compatible with phones with the associated app. Gift vouchers are the perfect gift for older kids and those that are difficult to buy for.
Enjoy all of Redcliffe’s attractions in one day
Redcliffe is a wonderful spot for families, and worth the drive from Brisbane to check out all their attractions, including the inviting beaches, parks and cafes. You can read our reviews of Redcliffe Lagoon and Scarborough Beach Park. Previously, Redcliffe’s main attractions required good weather, but Redcliffe Dimensions now offers locals and visitors a rainy day entertainment option. The movies on offer change each month, so there’s always something new to see and experience.
