A cinema complex in Wollongong was evacuated after a man flooded a bathroom by holding a lighter to a sprinkler system.

The unisex cubicle was flooded and water also entered the main foyer, causing movie-goers to be evacuated.

A 46-year-old man was arrested and refused bail to appear in Wollongong Local Court on Tuesday.
