Max Out On Choc Tops And Popcorn, Perth Cinemas Will Reopen In Two Weeks

The Palace Platinum cinema.

Maybe it’s a bit weird—but one of the things we’ve missed most in iso is going to the movies.

The pub and gigs and dinners out are also top of the list, but for some reason, sitting in a dark room, not talking to anyone, maxing out on snacks and watching movies is also way up there. Yep, even after months of Netflix binging, nothing beats the magic in a trip to the movies.

At any rate—cinemas were given the green light to re-open when Phase 3 kicked in on 6 June, provided they can stick to the new two square metre rule, but most are yet to re-open their doors. We have, however, started to hear a trickling of information about when they'll be coming back, and we thought you might be interested.

As for which Perth cinemas will reopen, so far these cinemas have announced their come back:

  • Reading Cinemas, including Belmont and Mandurah, have already re-opened.
  • Luna Palace Cinemas, including Luna Leederville, Luna on SX and Windsor Cinema, will re-open on Thursday 2 July.
  • Palace Cinemas, including Palace Raine Square and Palace Cinema Paradiso, will re-open on Thursday 2 July.

Ace CinemasEvent Cinemas, Hoyts and Grand Cinemas are yet to announce an opening date, but we don't think they'll be far off.

As for what we can't wait to see, Palace will be screening spooky thriller The Invisible Man with Elizabeth Moss, Disney's live-action rendition of Mulan is coming on Thursday 23 July, and the new Bill and Ted movie is due for late August. 

If you want to get out and about and actually speak to people, check out the new neighbourhood bar opening in Mosman Park, the State Building's new Wine Merchant, or this new gin distillery.
