The Mercury was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1992. The 186-seat bricks-and-mortar theatre has been a unique screen home to screen culture in South Australia for over 30 years. In the same building you’ll find the intimate 36-seat Iris Cinema, and our foyer with candy bar and licensed bar.
Whether it be a corporate video, PowerPoint presentation, home movies or feature films or website launches, we can show it on our big screen. The Mercury’s extensive networks within the film industry mean that we can source new releases, old classics, and everything in between.
The Iris Cinema is adjacent to the Mercury in the same building. It has its own foyer entrance and kitchenette and is fully licenced for events. It has a dedicated stage lighting, a lectern and other facilities make the Iris ideal for presentations, promotional events, lectures, performances, celebrations including children’s birthday parties, multiplayer gaming, and all forms of screenings.
