Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS - Hay­den Smith

TABLELANDS fam­i­lies will only be a Mal­teser throw away to the Cairns’ new­est cinema com­plex with their doors of­fi­cially open­ing yes­ter­day.

Event Cinemas Smith­field has opened just in time for the Septem­ber school hol­i­days.

With the largest Vmax screen north of Bris­bane, the cut­ting-edge new fa­cil­ity is ex­pect­ing strong crowds over the com­ing weeks.

“We are so proud of our new staff that have come from the area to work with us in this launch phase and who will hope­fully be here for years to come,” said gen­eral man­ager Lee Stad­don.

“There’s a real buzz among the team that has been work­ing so hard in en­sur­ing that the cinema is look­ing its best and ready to go, so we can pro­vide a great first im­pres­sion to our vis­i­tors.” The six-cinema com­plex will be able to ac­com­mo­date about 1300 guests in to­tal at any one time.

The flag­ship Vmax theatre, with 374 seats, is the only Cairns cinema to fea­ture the highly sought-af­ter Dolby At­mos tech­nol­ogy.

From now un­til Oc­to­ber 23, Event Cinemas Smith­field is of­fer­ing $14 stan­dard tick­ets to mem­bers of the com­pany’s Cineb­uzz loy­alty pro­gram.

Movies be­ing screened from to­day in­clude The Emoji Movie, Amer­i­can As­sas­sin, The Hit­man’s Body­guard, Cap­tain Un­der­pants: The First Epic Movie and more.

A VIP night is be­ing held on Septem­ber 20 for the launch of Kingsman: The Golden Cir­cle.
