Why Not Take Date Night Up a Notch With This Luxurious (Yet Affordable) Cinema Experience

Dinner and a movie has been an early date favourite for as long as movie theatres have existed. It’s easy to see why, too. When you are in the early stages of getting to know someone, your nerves can leave your brain searching desperately for something funny/insightful/smart to say or for meaningful questions to ask.

Enjoying a film together first gives you a couple of hours in which to get comfortable in each other’s presence while laying the groundwork for some easy conversation over a meal as you dissect what it was you each loved about the movie. Plus, it’s a great way to find out if you are on the same page when it comes to humour!

If you are keen to put this tried and true date night to the test in your own blossoming relationship (or even in your long term one) why not try to add a touch of luxury by booking yourself one of Hoyts Cinema’s extra-comfy recliners?

The recliners allow you to enjoy extra legroom, wider seating and extra comfort — for the exact same price as a regular seat! So, why not sit back, relax and recline (and maybe even have a snuggle) while you take in one of these great date night movies coming soon to Hoyts Cinemas across Victoria.

The Suicide Squad

More of a DC kinda couple? That’s okay, we’ve got you covered!

Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favourite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.
