With over 12 million people attending the cinemas annually, the movies remains Australia’s favourite cultural activity* so why not head to Event Cinemas & BCC Cinemas to entertain the kids these school holidays!
There’s even some hip-pocket reprieve with the Event Cinemas Family Pass plus a free 3D upgrade~ when you see Pixels or Pan.
Pixels and Pan join Oddball and Blinky Bill: The Movie as the four great family films on offer these holidays – and with the family pass options now available it means you don’t have to make a choice, you can see them all!
In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults.
President Will Cooper has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner, now a home theatre installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Pan is the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny – to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.
Oddball is a heart-warming true story of an eccentric chicken farmer who, with the help of his granddaughter, trains his mischievous dog to protect a wild penguin sanctuary from fox attacks, and in the process reunites the family and saves their seaside town. Oddball is a perfect family film, with a furry canine hero, lovable penguins, sneaky foxes and a crazy farmer… all set in a picturesque Aussie coastal town.
Everyone’s favourite koala, Blinky Bill is a koala with a big imagination. An adventurer at heart, he dreams of leaving the little town of Green Patch and following in his explorer father’s footsteps. Mr Bill went missing in the Outback some time ago and Blinky is the only one who believes his father is still alive. In Blinky Bill: The Movie, Blinky discovers a mysterious marker that hints at his Dad’s whereabouts, so he embarks on a journey that takes him beyond the boundary of Green Patch and into the wild and dangerous Outback.
The Family Pass options are: (2 Adults + 2 Kids OR 1 Adult and 3 Kids)
