What’s On

  • Angel Has Fallen

    Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerald Butler) evades his own agency as he attempts to find out who framed him for trying to murder the US President.

  • The Angry Birds Movie 2

    When Eagle Island villain Zeta (Jones) starts lobbing ice bombs at Piggy Island, ruler Leonard (Hader) bonds with angry birds (Sudeikis, McBride, Gad) to try and clip her wings. Half-knowing and half-derivative, it’s cheerful but gaudy and relentless and the story isn’t strong enough to support all the half-baked set pieces.

    23 Aug–29 Aug: Fri–Thu 10.10am

  • Dora and the Lost City of Gold

    Dora (Moner) is a teenager who spent her childhood exploring the jungle with her parents (Longoria and Peña), but when her parents go missing, Dora leaves high school to find them. A sweet Spy Kids-style adventure that never serves up anything too scary, complex or upsetting for young viewers; Moner gives a warm and delightful performance and is the main reason to watch.

    20 Aug–22 Aug: Tue–Thu 10.30am, 1pm, 3.30pm & 6pm

  • Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    Hobbs (Johnson) and Shaw (Statham) reluctantly team up to stop nasty Brixton (Elba) from doing bad things. It should have been a hoot, but while the two leads have proven comedy chops, a sketchy script doesn’t give them enough to do and there’s a general lack of imagination. The tank is half empty on this one.

    20 Aug–22 Aug: Tue 2.15pm, 5.15pm & 8.10pm; Wed & Thu 8.30pm

  • Good Boys

    Max (Tremblay), Lucas (Williams) and Thor (Noon) are 11-year-old best friends who, in the course of learning how to kiss, have a day-long adventure involving a stolen drone, drugs and sex toys. Silly, rude and often hilarious comedy with terrific performances from the boys.

    20 Aug–22 Aug: Tue 4.15pm, 6.20pm & 8.30pm; Wed & Thu 4.15pm, 6.20pm & 8.20pm

  • The Lion King

    The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

    20 Aug–22 Aug: Tue 11.15am, 2pm & 5pm; Wed & Thu 11.15am, 2pm, 5pm & 7.45pm

  • Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.

    20 Aug–22 Aug: Tue 12.30pm, 4pm, 7.30pm & 8.20pm; Wed & Thu 12.30pm, 4pm & 7.30pm

  • The Queen's Corgi

    Rex (Whitehall) is a corgi living in Buckingham Palace until Donald Trump (Culshaw) and his oversexed dog Mitzi (Hadland) arrive. Poorly judged Belgian animated feature with lame gags normalising sexual assault and bizarre underworld stereotypes and drug-based humour. Kids are unlikely to take offence but adults may feel that explaining the jokes aren’t worth the bother.

    20 Aug–22 Aug: (Kids) Tue–Thu 10am

  • Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

    In Halloween 1968, a gang of teens visit a haunted mansion where they find a book that starts manifesting their fears. Flawed but lively horror flick with plenty going on even when the plot gets choppy, with a charged backdrop of political crisis, prejudice and gossip.

    20 Aug: Tue 8pm

  • The Secret Life of Pets 2

    Max (Oswalt) lives with owner Katie (Kemper) in apartment with other pets Gidget (Slate), Chloe (Bell) and Snowball (Hart); then Max becomes worried about Katie’s new baby Max. There’s not enough humour, charm or sense to win over parents, but kids will enjoy the vivid animation and animal antics.

    20 Aug–22 Aug: (Kids) Tue–Thu 10.15am

  • Toy Story 4

    Woody (Tom Hanks) joins new owner Bonnie at kindergarten where he finds a new purpose in protecting her improvised toy Forky (Hale). Pixar manages to further the story with fine new characters and a satisfyingly teary conclusion, for a fine last chapter in the saga.

    20 Aug–22 Aug: Tue–Thu 11am & 1.30pm
