Ritz Cinemas Reopening Week

The Randwick cinema is celebrating reopening with seven days of $10 movie tickets.

When Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced New South Wales' latest stage of eased COVID-19 restrictions, she gave cinephiles a particularly exciting piece of news. Movie theatres have been closed around the country since mid-March; however, with current caps on indoor venues lifting on Wednesday, July 1, it appears that projectors will be allowed to start whirring again in the state. And, while that doesn't mean that it's popcorn-munching business as usual quite yet, local cinemas will gradually begin to reopen.

Randwick Ritz will be one of the initial places to start ushering movie buffs back into darkened rooms, opening its doors on the very first day it can. And it's celebrating with a week of $10 tickets. If you're a Ritz Royalty member (or happy to sign up for $18 a year), you'll get tickets for even cheaper: $8.

From Wednesday, July 1 to Tuesday, July 7, you can treat your mum, bestie or date to a flick for just ten dollaroos. Some of the films you'll be able to catch during the week include flicks that hit the big screen just before lockdown — The Invisible Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Portrait of a Lady on Fire and The Current War — plus new movies that were originally slated to hit cinemas during their closure, such as Hugo Weaving-starring Hearts and Bones and Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan eating and bantering their way through The Trip to Greece.

A couple of previews are on the lineup, too, including the Palme d'Or-nominated It Must be Heaven, NZ comedy Bellbird and travel documentary Romantic Road, as well as retro flicks like 1942 drama Casablanca and Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange.
