Some Pretty Epic Films Are Coming to HOYTS in August


Throughout August, HOYTS is bringing back some fan-favourite marathons, retro classics, and an all-new slate of big new movies — and believe us when we way, it’s worth leaving the house for.

Most notably, Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is finally hitting theatres on August 27, and if you head to the cinema a week earlier to re-watch Nolan’s hit, Inception on August 20, keep an eye out for an exclusive in-cinema featurette with bonus footage and interviews of the upcoming film with Christopher Nolan and the cast.

Alongside Tenet, are a slew of brand new films including action-thriller Force of Nature starring Mel Gibson, New Zealand comedy Lowdown Dirty Criminals, Made in Italy starring Liam Neeson, the inspiring true story of Saint Judy and South Korean Zombie film Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula.

On top of that, HOYTS is also re-releasing some cult favourites that you don’t want to miss. See below for the full list.
