Retro films at Hornsby Odeon Cinema

Image
Now that cinemas have reopened, film fans have a smorgasbord of retro screenings to enjoy. We’ve long championed getting out to support smaller cinemas that retain the yesteryear charm of going to the flicks. Hornsby Odeon Cinema holds a special place in my heart, as I experienced so many movies here as a child. Nothing beats seeing Hook with some friends for my 10th birthday. As silly as it may sound, heading out to see a film you love, goes a long way to returning to some kind of normality in this crazy year. “The Odeon team worked tirelessly during lockdown to repaint freshen up and throughly clean everything. In addition we have also recommissioned our state of the art 35mm equipment with features such as Dolby SRD 6 track stereo sound system with EX extension. The aim being to run feel good retro titles on film” Click here to check out current session times and what's coming soon.  Hornsby Odeon Cinema  Address: 155 Pacific Hwy, Hornsby NSW 2077 Something for for the whole fam

New Zealand’s BELLBIRD, coming to Aussie cinemas 2 July

Image
Ross (Marshall Napier) has farmed the land all his life, just as his father and grandfather did before him. A largely silent man, Ross farms the land alongside his far more exuberant wife Beth (Annie Whittle), who is an eager participant in the local choir and a friend to many. When Beth suddenly dies, Ross is crushed but incapable of displaying his emotions. His son Bruce (Cohen Holloway) moves back in and tries to help, but is not suited to the farming life and also has great difficulties in expressing himself. Around them, their friends realise the difficulties, and pitch in to help. One of my favourite films of the Sydney Film Festival 2019, is finally getting released! This is the exact antidote to all of 2020's nonsense that we've all been crying out for. Perfect way to get back into going to the movies.  Bellbird hits cinemas 2nd of July, 2020 - Stu
