Since Australia went into COVID-19 lockdown, heading out to catch a movie in a cinema has been off the cards. We've all be watching plenty of films and TV shows at home, though, thanks to seemingly non-stop array of streaming options — but if you're a devoted Sydney cinephile, you're probably eagerly looking forward to your next night out at the flicks.

While Sydney cinemas aren't open and screening a regular array of movies as yet — with the Australian Government's three-step plan allowing reopening in mid-June, but the industry generally aiming for a mid-July relaunch — Surry Hills' Golden Age Cinema and Bar is planning to let movie buffs in the doors from Monday, June 1. It's doing so by opening up for private (and socially distanced) film screenings, which'll allow you to rent out the place for a session with nine of your mates.

For $125 per person, you'll get to pick your movie, enjoy drinks and snacks from Golden Age's bar, and get the run of the place with your pals for three hours. That price includes the film licensing and programming fee, $75 in bar credit per person, and glassware and cleaning charges. Sessions are available from Wednesdays–Sundays from 2–11pm.

Golden Age will be adhering to social-distancing requirements, of course — so there'll be four-square-metres of space per person, allocated seating a minimum of 1.5 metres apart, thorough cleaning between sessions and prominent sanitisation stations around the place.

Depending on New South Wales' future easing of restrictions, the venue might be able to allow 20 folks in at once in the near future, too — outside of bar operating hours.

Golden Age Cinema and Bar's private film screenings are available from Monday, June 1. For further details, or to book, visit the cinema's website.
