Whether you’re planning a fun outing for all the family, a much-needed girl’s night out or a romantic date night with your significant other, there’s nothing quite like a trip to the movies. Afterall, what could be better than seeing your favourite stars, larger than life, projected on to the big screen, while savouring a delicious choc-top?
Local mum, Michelle has worked at EVENT Cinemas Miranda for several years, and as a busy mother to an active 11-year-old girl, she is super passionate about the venue and all that it has to offer.
AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE
She said: “In the age of on-demand streaming and box-set binging, it’s easy for us Mums to forget how much fun a trip to the cinema can be. There’s way more to it than the film itself, at EVENT Cinemas Miranda, seeing a movie is a truly immersive experience, with state-of-the art VMAX screens and the latest DOLBY ATMOS surround sound. It’s easy to switch off and lose yourself in the feature, forgetting all about the distractions of home.”
BABY AND ME
At Event Cinemas Miranda the movie-going experience can start when bubs are only a few weeks old, thanks to special BRING YOUR BABY sessions, designed to encourage mums to get out of the house and enjoy the latest blockbusters. The sound is lowered to be safe for baby’s ears, and the lights are up, so mums can feed, nurse or do whatever they need to ensure baby is comfortable.
Pre-school kids can enjoy EVENT JUNIOR sessions showing the latest G-rated films. Again, the lighting and sound are modified, and there’s a 10-minute intermission half way through the film where the kids can have a dance. There are also toys and play equipment for them to enjoy while they watch the movie.
Family Fun Days are a regular occurrence where the whole family can come and enjoy the latest kids’ blockbuster with fun games and activities happening before the film.
BRING THE KIDS… OR DON’T
“It’s not just about the kids!” Said Michelle, “There are so many excellent family-friendly movies now that have something for everyone, captivating stories for the kids, and subtle in-jokes to give the parents a giggle. Everyone is sure to have a great time. But, if you’re not in the mood for the latest Disney or Pixar offering then perhaps a luxury Gold Class experience just for the grown-ups is in order.”
FIRST CLASS EXPERIENCE
The Shire’s movie-goers love luxury, with demand for Gold Class tickets at the Miranda theatre outselling anywhere else in Sydney! It’s not hard to see why; it’s the ultimate luxury cinema experience with wall-to-wall screens, fully-reclining armchairs and an amazing array of food and beverage options that can be delivered straight to your seat. The Gold Class lounge is also the perfect place to catch-up with friends before your movie, or to relax and unwind.
CHICKS AT THE FLICKS sessions are the perfect excuse for you to get your girl pals together to enjoy a special preview romantic comedy or an emotional tear-jerker. There’s pre-movie mingling and goodie bags packed full of samples and offers from local businesses. Get there early to enjoy the atmosphere and have a glass of bubbly or two.
JOIN THE CLUB
“At Event Cinemas Miranda, we often have special pricing, such as two-for one offers or family ticket discounts for our Cinebuzz members.” Said Michelle. She continued: “It’s completely free to join, and members get access to special screenings and deals, and for each movie they see they earn points to go towards a free movie. The kids can even join up with Cinebuzz Crew perfect for juniors. With Christmas holidays coming up, there are so many awesome movies on the horizon, so it’s a good way to ensure you get the best deals for the films you are planning to see.”
If it’s been a while since the fam caught a film on the big screen, here are some awesome movies to look forward to over the holidays, The Grinch, Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Mary Poppins Returns, Storm Boy, Ralph Breaks The Internet.
