Due to even further expansion of the Chadstone Shopping Centre, all 17 screens will close shortly for a complete re-build. Expected 18-24 month closure to complete new structure.

Hoyts Chadstone closed for demolition on Tuesday June 10th 2014.

Hoyts Chadstone was Australia’s first suburban Multiplex opening in Dec 1986 and was Hoyts Cinemas flagship location for most of it’s 28 years.

After a 600 million dollar shopping centre expansion, the NEW 13 cinema complex to replace this one will open in early 2016 in the existing footprint where Target now operates 1 level up.

It has reopened as the new complex. This information is now outdated.
