Pentridge Cinema to launch with star-studded premiere of THE DRY

November 28, 2020 Lifestyle News No Comments

Palace Cinemas is proud to announce that the official opening of Pentridge Cinema will take place on Friday 11 December 2020.After seven years of development and almost three years of construction, Melbourne’s historic Pentridge prison site has been transformed into an oasis for movie lovers, and the highly anticipated opening will host the Australian premiere of THE DRY, in partnership with Roadshow Films.

Palace Cinemas is Australia’s largest independent cinema group, and Pentridge Cinema will be the most impressive in its circuit comprising 15 screens and the capacity to hold 1,100 moviegoers. It will be the first cinema complex to have one of a kind, luxurious state of the art fully-reclining leather seats.

Starring Eric Bana and directed by Robert Connolly, THE DRY is based on Jane Harper’s international and award-winning best-selling novel. Bana plays Aaron Falk, a Federal Agent who returns to his drought-stricken hometown to attend a tragic funeral. But his return opens a decades-old wound — the unsolved death of a teenage girl.

Filmed in Melbourne and throughout the Wimmera region of rural Victoria, THE DRY is the perfect Australian film to open Coburg’s Pentridge Cinema, a fortuitous nod to Eric Bana’s iconic role as Chopper Read in Chopper, the infamous resident of Her Majesty’s Pentridge prison.

“Cinema is Australia’s favourite out-of-home activity, and we are thrilled to throw open the doors to the latest and greatest cinema in Victoria,” says Palace Cinemas CEO, Benjamin Zeccola.

“The synergies of launching the iconic Pentridge Cinema in partnership with Roadshow Films for the debut of an Australian movie, with internationally acclaimed locals Eric Bana and Jane Harper is a real honour,” concludes Zeccola.

Summer’s best films will be screened at Pentridge Cinema, including eagerly anticipated big-screen releases including The Dry, as well as Wonder Woman 1984Penguin BloomPromising Young WomanThe 355NomadlandHow to Be a Good WifeHigh Ground, and Music by Sia, along with family-friendly favourites such as Roald Dahl’s The WitchesConnectedSuperintelligence and The Croods: A New Age.

Moviegoers safety is paramount at Pentridge Cinema which will open with staggered session times to avoid unnecessary congestion in foyers, checkerboard seating and increased air ventilation (cycling new fresh-air to match the occupancy of each cinema six times per hour). Hand-sanitiser stations will be available at cinema entrances and points of sale, along with contactless payment and online bookings with in-built contact tracing collection.
