Spring School Holiday Movie Guide 2019/2020
In cinemas now: Four Kids & It

A trip to the movies is always a fun activity to do during term break, which means everyone is wondering what’s in cinemas these school holidays! With restrictions easing in NSW, the cinemas are open again, and they’re doing lots to ensure a Covid-safe experience for all guests. Our Movie Guide for the Spring School Holidays features everything you need to choose the best movie for your family… including ratings, duration and the trailer!

Movies: A covid-safe school holiday activity

Cinemas have had to make some important changes to ensure the healthy and safety of their guests. These include:

  • Screening guests before they arrive, with health and safety questions
  • Limiting the number of guests on site
  • Seat separation in cinemas. When you book tickets online, seats around you will be blocked out to ensure you’re not right next to another group.
  • Increased cleaning & sanitisation in high-touch areas
  • Encouragement of pre-booking and contactless payment

If you’re going to the movies, protect others by:

  • Following distance markers throughout the venues (foyer, candy bar, cinemas)
  • Practice good hygiene and wash hands frequently
  • Place your rubbish in the bin at the conclusion of sessions
  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell.
  • Cover coughs/sneezes, dispose of tissues and make use of the available hand sanitiser

Get more details about what Hoyts and Event Cinemas are doing to keep you Covid-safe.
