SciFi Film Festival and SciFi Con are located at Riverside Theatres on the corner of Church and Market Streets, Parramatta, NSW, 2150, just a 30 minute drive from Sydney CBD.
Our Festival is now a signature event in the dynamic Parramatta Entertainment Precinct, western Sydney’s hub of live performance and cinemas, with a great range of restaurants, bars, cafes and hotels.
Tickets are available at the Box Office centrally located in the Foyer and is open Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm, Saturday 9:30am to 1:00pm.
Riverside has installed new state-of-the-art hearing systems in all three theatres to assist patrons who are hearing impaired. When booking tickets, patrons can choose from a single ear earpiece, a neck loop attached to their own hearing aid or their own headphones, to amplify the sound from the stage. Patrons will receive a special ticket for hearing assistance, which they are required to present at the Bar on the day of their performance, in order to collect their earpiece or neck loop.
Riverside offers level access and space for wheelchairs in all venues. Accessible bathrooms are also available. Please let the Riverside Theatres box office know if you need level access or a wheelchair space at the time of booking your tickets.
