If you’ve managed to avoid spoilers until now, then seize your chance to see one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2018. Die-hard Marvel fans, prepare to catch your breath only after that post-credits scene rolls.

As the Avengers and allies have continued to keep Earth and greater universe safe, a new threat emerges from the cosmic shadows. The evil Thanos’ goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones in his quest to cleanse the universe, and the fate of existence itself rests on the Avengers’ shoulders. Starring all your favourite Hollywood Chrises (Hemsworth, Pratt AND Evans) this one is not to be missed for adults and teens alike.


The events on Chappaquiddick Island in the summer of 1969 have been the stuff of legend for decades. In the early morning of July 18, Senator Ted Kennedy drove his car off a bridge on Chappaquiddick, resulting in the death of his passenger, 28-year-old campaign strategist Mary Jo Kopechne. But what caused the accident? And why didn’t Ted Kennedy report it to the police until nine hours later? Starring Jason Clarke and Kate Mara, this film is already getting Oscars buzz.


Everyone’s favourite funny lady, Melissa McCarthy, is back with this feel-good ‘mom-com’ about a recently separated wife who goes back to college. Loved Spy, Bridesmaids and The Heat? This is the perfect film for you.

Need a plan for Mothers Day? Why not treat her to a $15 Premium Cinema experience and grab tickets to Life Of The Party?


An outbreak of canine flu in near-dystopian future Japan leads to all dogs being banished to Trash Island. When a 12-year-old boy lands on the island, the exiled pooches must embark on an epic journey to reunite him with his beloved pet.

Along the same vein of Fantastic Mr. Fox, this stop-motion animation from the creative mind of Wes Anderson will charm both children and adults alike. Featuring the voices of Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, and Scarlett Johansson.


 No stranger to dramatic makeovers for movie roles, Oscar-winner Charlize Theron gained almost 25kg to transform into the overworked Marlo, a newly minted mother of three. With her loving husband clueless to the demands of motherhood, Marlo’s brother hires her a night nanny – Tully (Mackenzie Davis). Though initially resistant, Marlo soon bonds with Tully and learns some lessons along the way.

Happening until Tuesday 15 May at Dendy Canberra. Get your tickets via the website.
