What’s On

Four women (Keaton, Fonda, Bergen and Steenburgen) form a book club to read Fifty Shades of Grey, and in so doing reassess their lives. Irresistibly cheeky and shamelessly cheesy ensemble drama in which older women are placed in the centre of the action, with a torrent of innuendo delivered with relish by a superior cast.

18 Jun–21 Jun: Mon–Wed 2pm; Thu 3.45pm

When tragedy splinters Wade Wilson’s own life, it takes a meeting with a mutant kid (Dennison) and vengeful cyborg Cable (Brolin) to renew his sense of purpose. Filthy, ferocious and funny, it surpasses its predecessor by doubling down on the gleeful self-awareness and excess; the whole cast shines, and the climax is surprisingly touching.

18 Jun–21 Jun: Mon–Wed 3pm & 5.45pm; Thu 6pm

Annilese Miskimmon directs Puccini's tragic romance.

21 Jun: Thu 6.30pm

Annie (Collette) is an artist who crafts a dollhouse depicting the traumas of her life, but then her family begins to feel they’re being haunted by her late mother. Unnervingly oppressive debut from Aster, exploring maternal guilt and family anxiety. Collette has one of her best roles in years.

18 Jun–21 Jun: Mon 2.30pm & 8.30pm; Tue–Thu 2.30pm, 5.30pm & 8.30pm

18 Jun: (Subtitled) Mon 5.30pm

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

18 Jun–21 Jun: Mon & Tue 2pm, 5pm, 7.30pm & 8.15pm; Wed & Thu 2pm, 5pm & 8.15pm

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing lack of a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

23 Jun–24 Jun: Sat & Sun 10am

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

18 Jun–21 Jun: Mon–Thu 2.15pm, 5.15pm & 8pm

A mystery screening for Cineworld's Unlimited members.

20 Jun: Wed 7.30pm

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.

18 Jun–21 Jun: Mon–Wed 4.30pm & 8.45pm; Thu 3pm & 8.45pm
