Time Out says

This abandoned Chinatown cinema has been reborn as Pleasures Playhouse, a subversive party haven

Held in Haymarket’s long-abandoned Harbour City Twin Cinema, Pleasures Playhouse is all about showcasing what exists in the fringes, with the dusty old Chinese movie theatre getting a new lease on life after 15 very dormant years. The venue has been transformed into a dystopian wonderland that links the venue’s old roots with a new, technological future.

Whether it be a wild underground sexuality and body positivity party courtesy of ‘Leak Your Own Noods' or Show us Ya Tips, live music performances by the likes of Alex Lahey and Nai Palm, a ‘raunchy’ cabaret show with an accompanying full live house band,  pop-up Yum Cha, record nights, or Arthouse movie showings accompanied by natural wines from P & V and noodles from Biang Biang, this wild, late night, brazenly bold celebration of subcultures and amazing food has something for everyone.
