It combines everything into one. Not only does it take the actual movie to the next level with the latest cinema sound and screen technology, but the comfort and food are unparalleled as well.
The menu itself is luxurious and delicious – having been designed by one of the hosts from MasterChef, Manu Fieldel. A bit more on that below.
In addition to the extraordinary food, at select Lux locations, you’ll find recliners designed with the ultimate comforting experience in mind. Easy to use controls, an attached wooden table for your food and beverages, and ultra-luxurious couch seating at Carousel cinemas.
All in all, the Hoyts Lux experience has been curated to be optimised for luxury over capacity. Allowing you to enjoy the latest blockbusters on the biggest screens, all without the worry of the mass crowds which are normally seen for the price of a general admission ticket.
Once you go Lux, you can’t go back. Of course, the prices are quite a bit higher than the standard candy bar menu at Hoyts, so maybe Lux is better off as a special treat every now and then.
If you’ve ever watched MasterChef, you’ll likely recognise his face and accent over his name.
Hoyts have partnered with the MasterChef judge, Manu Feildel, to reinvigorate and bring to life a new era of the food on offer at Hoyts Lux.
Overall, the menu focuses on gourmet ingredients, bringing together flavours and tastes from around the world. You’ll also find some of the more traditional meals have a unique modern twist to them. Something I’m sure will leave your taste buds delighted.
Hoyts themselves put together a little promotional video for the launch of their new menu. I’d say it definitely captures the goofy vibe of Fieldel perfectly:

You’ll be able to dine on the delicious menu at Lux all across the country, mostly. Hoyts Lux can be found in New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, and South Australia.
Sorry Queenslanders – you’ve only got the standard Hoyts popcorn and drinks menu to choose from.

Now you know where Lux is, the next step is choosing what you’re going to have from the menu after you pick the movie of course. But what food do you choose?
It’s one of the best rated by customers, and it’s also one of Fieldel’s personal favourites – it’s the Duck Bao.
Dine on a trio of steamed bao, filled with a variety of ingredients combined into something magical. Inside each, you’ll find crispy confit duck, house made shitake & cucumber pickle, spring onion & ginger mayo and a smoky hoisin sauce. Brilliant.
You also have the option to replace the duck with crispy salt and pepper tofu if that’s your thing.
If you’re after something a little heavier, I recommend going for the Coq au Vin. French chicken cassoulet pies – encased with a delicious Careme shortcrust pastry and then topped with puff pastry.
Fair warning – you may enjoy the food more than the movie.
Higher, in the traditional sense. But sometimes it’s not just about the literal dollar amount. It also depends on the value.
The items on the menu at Lux are a far superior food offering. As mentioned earlier, it’s been designed by one of the most recognisable chefs in the country, features a range of exquisite and unique food combinations from around the world, and comes with a standard of service more luxurious than some First Class seats in planes.
So yes, you will be paying a higher price for food and beverages at Lux, but you’ll also be receiving a far higher return in value of each dollar you put in.
In saying that – it’s all up to you.
If you’d rather have a Large Popcorn & Drink for $20, go for it. But if you’d rather have a smooth glass of wine with a side of Duck Cigar Spring Rolls, then Lux is for you.

Otherwise, check out their FAQs to see if your question has already been answered (there isn’t much on LUX though).
The Lux experience is one of the tools Hoyts has used to bring movie-goers back into the cinema are losing them to home theatre systems in recent times. And they’re successfully bringing them back with the allure of fantastic food designed by a well-renowned chef.
All in all, the food menu available at Hoyts Lux might be a bit more expensive than the traditional candy bar, but the experiences cannot be compared.
