It’s time to celebrate: Cinemas are back

With Event Cineamas opening back up on Thursday, 2 July it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of a comfy chair, freshly popped popcorn and a new movie release.

To celebrate the reopening, for a limited time, half price adult tickets* are available for Cinebuzz members across all movie experiences including Gold Class and VMAX. Find out more here.

From a chick flick and cocktail with the girls to everyone's favourite date night out, here are the perfect combos to help you plan your next cinema trip, complete with the restaurants to match.

Date Night:

Whether you’re looking for a first date idea or in need of some quality time with your partner, a candle-lit dinner at your favourite restaurant complemented by a new release is the perfect option (and one that has been off the cards for a while now).

Here are some of our top restaurant picks to set the scene and create a little bit of romance. Don’t forget to book in ahead of time to reserve your table.

  • Vapiano: Indulge in a traditional Italian meal with a range of handcrafted pizzas, pastas and salads.
  • PappaRich: Enjoy authentic and quality Malaysian food. PappaRich's delicately crafted dishes never fail to deliver bursts of flavour.
  • Kinn Thai: Book in to Kinn Thai to satisfy your tastebuds with the traditional flavours of Thai cooking with a contemporary twist.

Now it’s time to end the night on a high - grab yourselves a choc top for dessert and head on in to view one of these new releases:

  • Baby Teeth Teenager Milla falls in love with a small-time drug dealer Moses, and it’s her protective parents’ worst nightmare. Things get messy and morals go out the window, as the lives of those around the family become intertwined and Milla shows those in her orbit how to live like you have nothing to lose.
