'Inception' Tenth Anniversary Season

Christopher Nolan's 2010 mind-bender is returning to the big screen.

With Sydney's cinemas shutting down for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic — and only slated to start reopening at the beginning of July — the idea of watching a movie in a darkened theatre currently feels a bit surreal. From Thursday, July 16, that'll just be the first level of your dream-like film-going experience. Expect at least four others, with the dreams within dreams (within dreams within dreams) of Christopher Nolan's Inception returning to the big screen.

Ten years after it first hit cinemas, the acclaimed mind-bender is back — to mark that anniversary; to help get everyone in the mood for Nolan's new movie, Tenet; and to give film-lovers something else to watch as Aussie picture palaces slowly relaunch. It's actually popping into the slot originally taken by Tenet, which has had its Australian release pushed back until Thursday, July 30. So, if you were looking forward to a mid-July date with a twisty Nolan action-thriller, that can still happen.

As written and directed by Nolan, Inception became a fast favourite a decade ago for plenty of reasons, including its dream-hijacking premise, its eye-popping visuals and its fantastic cast. In case you've forgotten the setup, it follows professional thief Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio), who steals secret information from his targets' subconscious while they slumber — with help from the likes of Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger and Michael Caine.
