With Coronavirus restrictions lifting, here are all the places you can watch the latest new releases, cult classics, and indie darlings.
Balmoral, Hawthorne, Hawthorne Deluxe, Southbank, Victoria Point, Redbank, + all others
Because of its cheap ticket prices ($12.50 for adults and $8.50 for students) Cineplex Cinemas are a favourite for moviegoers chasing a deal. To the bargain hunting film fanatics delight, they’ve reopened with new releases The Personal History of David Copperfield, Samsam, and The Wretched. They’re also showing some old classics, like A Clockwork Orange, Ten Things I Hate About You, and Bladerunner.
Brisbane City Myer Centre, Browns Plains, Capalaba, Carindale, Chermside, Garden City Mt Gravatt, Indooroopilly, Moonlight City Cinema, + all others
To celebrate their reopening, Event Cinemas are offering half price tickets across all movie experiences. That means you enjoy cult classic Pulp Fiction or heart-warming comedy Love Sarah with all the opulent trappings of Gold Class for only half the price.
If you’ve been considering becoming a Cinebuzz member, now’s the time because the offer is for members only.
New Farm Cinemas, Red Hill Cinemas and Yatala Drive-In
The New Farm and Red Hill Cinemas are open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and the Yatala Drive-In is open 7 days a week. All three are reopening with strict social distancing methods. You’ll have to purchase tickets online and scan them on entry, and the candy bar only provides takeaway snacks and drinks.
They’ve also got a wide array of films to choose from, like so-bad-its-good The Room or psychological thriller The Assistant.
If you’re planning on visiting Yatala Drive-In, make sure you have FM car radio or a portable FM radio.
Palace Barracks, Palace James St
If you’re looking for a boutique cinematic experience, visit the newly reopened Palace Cinemas. Although it shows mainstream films, it’s known for exhibiting classic or arthouse cinema.
It’s also where you can check out Alliance Francaise, the 31st French Film Festival.
All Queensland cinemas are required to operate under stage 3 eased restrictions. This includes social distancing measures, maintaining a 4 square meter area per person, personal hygiene and infection control, and staying home if you’re unwell.
