Event Cinemas North Lakes looks set to open its doors in time for the Easter school holidays, and the announcement couldn’t come sooner for locals.

Residents and business operators in North Lakes have been vocal about the need for a cinema complex at Westfield North Lakes for over a decade.

Finally, Event Cinemas North Lakes will open its doors on Thursday 24 March, with tickets on sale for the first run of movies now.

The line-up of films showing on opening day will include blockbuster comic book movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, animated favourite Kung Fu Panda 3, and romantic comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.

“We are so proud of our stunning new cinema complex,” says Event Cinemas general manager Catherine Joseph.

“With its incredible design and state of the art technology, we are bringing a whole new level of luxury to cinema-going that locals have been waiting for.”

Event Cinemas North Lakes will feature two Gold Class cinemas, where audiences can enjoy a private bar, fully reclining leather seats, and ‘first class’ food and drinks delivered during the movie. The complex will also feature two Vmax cinemas, and four traditional cinemas.

Both Gold Class and Vmax auditoriums will feature the multidimensional audio of the Dolby Atmos Sound System.

To tie in with the Easter opening, the cinema will play host to an Easter Egg hunt during screenings of Kung Fu Panda 3 on Good Friday, Easter Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with special appearances from the Easter Bunny himself.

There’ll be more surprises and giveaways during the opening weekend festivities, and the cinema is also giving guests the chance to win free movies for an entire year by registering with Cine Buzz before 29 April and selecting North Lakes as their preferred cinema.

Tickets for sessions at Event Cinemas North Lakes are now on sale at eventcinemas.com.au.
