Keen to escape the realities of 2020 for a little bit? We don't blame you, it's been a pretty wild ride. Helping you go back to simpler times this November and December is Hoyts Cinemas, with its new retro series the Best of the Classics. First up, the entertainment company is screening a heap of flicks from the 1970s and 1980s, full of lo-fi special effects, bad fashion, epic stunts, nail-biting adrenaline and cheesy one-liners. In other words, the ideal antidote to our current reality.
Every week till December 2, Hoyts Cinemas across Sydney will be screening 70s horror and 80s action blockbusters, so you can get your cinematic chills and thrills on the big screen this spring. From the 70s, expect Ridley Scott's Alien, the 1976 adaptation of Stephen King's Carrie, William Friedkin's The Exorcist and everyone's favourite shark film, Jaws. If you're more keen on action-packed cinema, then catch Bruce Willis in the OG Die Hard, James Cameron's sci-fi thriller Aliens or Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator and Predator.
Sessions dates and times vary for each participating Hoyts cinema, so best to check the Hoyts Best of the Classics program here before booking in your next movie date.
