Most NZ cinemas are opening this weekend - here's what's playing

Must See 11/06/2020

If your local movie theatre hasn't opened up already since returning to Level One of the Covid Alert System, then it is likely it's doors will be open this weekend so that you can go and enjoy a film on the big screen.

While the pandemic has seen a dramatic slowdown in the rollout of major movies this year with many delayed indefinitely, Kiwi film fans have been given more of an idea this week of when they can expect to see new releases back in cinemas.

Universal Pictures announced it's releasing family film Trolls World Tour and musical romantic dramedy The High Note on July 2.

The first New Zealand film to open after the pandemic outbreak will be This Town, originally set to be released in April but now opening on July 30. Distributor Madman Entertainment told Newshub it anticipates the family murder comedy will open on a whopping 110 screens.
