What’s On

  • Aladdin

    Live-action remake of the 1992 animated Disney film, directed by Guy Richie and starring Will Smith as the Genie.

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Five years after Thanos’s victory, the Avengers are in despair until Ant-Man (Rudd) kicks the story back into action. The final film in the saga verges on fanservice, but there’s intelligent character development, everyone (except Johansson) is given enough to do, and some arcs have a truly poignant sense of closure. Playful, inventive and highly entertaining.

    22 May–23 May: Wed & Thu 3.30pm & 7.30pm

  • John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

    John Wick (Reeves) is a global exile with a $14m bounty on his head, and is forced to ask snarly assassin Sofia (Berry) for the help she owes him. The third instalment of this action franchise is the best, with spectacular fight sequences, numerous genius details and excellent performances. Violent, hilarious, surprising and cool.

    22 May–23 May: Wed & Thu 2.30pm, 5.30pm & 8.30pm

  • Paw Patrol: Mighty Pups

    A meteor lands in Adventure Bay and gives the pups superpowers, but also gives superpowers to nasty Harold of neighbouring Foggy Bottom. Basically a 70-minute extended episode of the series, enjoyably innocuous and easy to follow, although parents won’t be pleased when the toy requests come in after the end credits roll.

    24 May–28 May: Mon, Tue & Fri–Sun 10.15am

  • Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun

    Ten new episodes of Peppa Pig including a two-part festival special.

    24 May–30 May: (Kids) Fri–Thu 10am

  • Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

    Tim (Smith) is a former Pokémon trainer who teams up with Pikachu (voiced by Reynolds) to solve a mysterious car accident which leaves his detective father presumed dead. Reynolds’ voice skills are incredible, you don’t need to know about the franchise to get what’s going on and it’s a quirky and lovingly crafted surreal comedy thriller.

    24 May–30 May: Fri–Tue noon, 2.45pm & 5.15pm; Wed & Thu 11.30am, 2pm & 4.30pm

  • Rocketman

    This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.

    24 May–30 May: Fri–Tue 11.15am, 2.15pm, 5.30pm, 7pm & 8.30pm; Wed & Thu 11am, 2.15pm, 5.15pm, 7pm & 8.15pm

  • The Secret Life of Pets 2

    A sequel to the 2016 film.

    24 May–30 May: Fri–Tue 10am, 11.30am, 12.15pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm, 3.45pm, 4.45pm, 6pm & 8.15pm; Wed & Thu 11.15am, 1.30pm, 3.45pm, 6pm & 8.30pm
