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 have been included in the list of businesses allowed to reopen as of Wednesday 1 July, provided they can stick to that all-important four square metre rule. This means, yes, in about two weeks you can hit the movies again in Sydney and across NSW again.
As for which Sydney cinemas will reopen, so far these cinemas have announced their come back:
- The Ritz, Randwick
- Palace Cinemas, Various Locations (From Thursday 2 July)
- The Orpheum (From Thursday 9 July)
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.
For now though, we highly recommend dipping into the Sydney Film Festival's digital on-demand program. There are 33 films guaranteed to get you talking.
