Mercury CX is a non-profit centre of excellence; a place to engage and immerse in story. Our beloved Mercury Cinema is the home of independent cinema and the West End’s home of stories on screen.
Established in 1974 as the Media Resource Centre, today Mercury CX is an organisation of the future dedicated to developing the Australian screen industry. Home to the national Screenmakers Conference, Mercury LAB’s, Mercury Production Fund, South Australian Screen Awards & Mercury Cinema Complex Specialist Screening Programs.
Our cinemas offer premium film projection facilities, surround sound, and plush, tiered seating. In the foyer, you’ll find a Hollywood inspired Lounge Bar and Cafe.
In addition to our curated film offerings every week, the 186-seat Mercury and 36-seat Iris, and the foyers, are available for hire. They’re perfect for functions including film screenings, live and mixed media performances, fundraisers, launches, parties, conferences and seminars. Each hire includes a fully qualified projectionist for all screenings, and experienced front-of-house staff.
You’ll find Mercury CX & Cinema at 13 Morphett St, adjacent to the southern end of the Morphett Street Bridge, in Adelaide’s West End Creative Precinct.
