The Mercury CX has two cinemas: The Mercury, which seats 186 patrons, and The Iris, which seats 36 patrons. Located in the Lion Arts Centre in the heart of Adelaide, the venue is flexible for most events and includes a modern foyer area with a licensed bar, a fully qualified projectionist for all screenings and experienced front of house staff.

The Mercury Cinema can be used for a variety of functions including live and mixed media performances, launches, parties, and seminars. Along with premium film projection facilities and surround sound, the cinema is fitted with tiered theatre seating offering optimum viewing from any position.

Adjacent to the Mercury is the intimate Iris Cinema. Fitted with wall to wall projection and surround sound, the more personalized cinema is the ideal venue for smaller events.
