A NEW casual dining and entertainment precinct makes up the first stage of the Whitford City shopping centre redevelopment.
Scentre Group announced today that this would include an eight-screen Event Cinemas complex featuring two Vmax, two gold class and four general cinemas.
The existing piazza on the centre’s northern side will be transformed into the new casual dining precinct with 10 restaurants in a landscaped public space.

This outdoor area aims to celebrate Perth’s cafe culture, and will connect to the cinema complex and a relocated and expanded Rebel Sport. A section of the existing lower level will also be converted into an entertainment precinct linking to the dining precinct and cinemas above.
“The creation of a lifestyle and entertainment precinct at Whitford City will provide Perth’s northern community with a new hub for leisure and dining that can be enjoyed by day or night,” centre manager Scott Greenwood said. “People love to gather in a shared space that has a positive ambience and we believe the mix of food operators and landscaped environment will provide a genuine destination for our community.”
Works are expected to start by the end of August and finish late next year.
