With resilience we’re making it through and today (September 21, 2022), we celebrate our 101st anniversary.

We are grateful to our directors, staff, prayer warriors and patrons who remained with us through thick and thin; also our suppliers, who have been more than patient, just to mention a few.

We give thanks that we now see a light ahead and for so many reasons, we came together as a family to pray and express our gratitude for the courage and strength to withstand the challenges of COVID-19, and for the blessings that have sustained and uplifted us on our journey to 101 years.

Stay tuned, our cinemas are open and we have an awesome line-up of films for you!

OPENING FRIDAY

AVATAR (Rerelease)

A world unlike any other

Ahead of the big release of Avatar 2 – The Way of the Water, moviegoers will once again have the opportunity to travel in 3D across the universe to the distant planet of Pandora in the year 2154.

Avatar is a theatrical rerelease of James Cameron’s Academy Award-winning 2009 epic sci-fi action adventure in stunning 4K High Dynamic Range.

Written and directed by Academy Award winner James Cameron, Avatar stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez and Sigourney Weaver.

From 20th Century Studios, Avatar was produced by James Cameron and Jon Landau. Nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, the film won three Oscars, for Best Cinematography, Production Design and Visual Effects.

Executive producers: Laeta Kalogridis, Colin Wilson.

Don’t Worry Darling

We’re safe and secure

From New Line Cinema comes Don’t Worry Darling, directed by Olivia Wilde ( Booksmart) and starring Florence Pugh (Oscar-nominated for Little Women), Harry Styles ( Dunkirk), Wilde ( Upcoming Babylon), Gemma Chan ( Crazy Rich Asians), KiKi Layne ( The Old Guard) and Chris Pine ( All the Old Knives).

Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) live in the idealised community of Victory, the experimental company town housing the men who work for the top-secret Victory Project and their families. The 1950s societal optimism espoused by their CEO, Frank (Pine), anchors every aspect of daily life in the tight-knit desert utopia.

While the husbands spend every day inside the Victory Project headquarters, working on the “development of progressive materials”, their wives — including Frank’s elegant partner, Shelley (Chan) — get to spend their time enjoying the beauty, luxury and debauchery of their community. Life is perfect, with every resident’s needs met by the company. All they ask in return is discretion and unquestioning commitment to the Victory cause.

But when cracks in their idyllic life begin to appear, Alice can’t help questioning exactly what they’re doing in Victory, and why.

The film also stars Nick Kroll, Sydney Chandler, Kate Berlant, Asif Ali, Douglas Smith, Timothy Simons and Ari’elStachel.

Wilde directs from a screenplay by Katie Silberman, based on a story by Carey Van Dyke, Shane Van Dyke and Silberman. The film is produced by Wilde, Silberman, Miri Yoon and Roy Lee, with Richard Brener, Celia Khong, Alex G. Scott, Catherine Hardwicke, Carey Van Dyke and Shane Van Dyke executive producing. Wilde is joined behind the camera by two-time Oscar-nominated director of photography Matthew Libatique ( A Star Is Born, Black Swan).
