Did you hear? A 15-screen cinema is opening at Pentridge Prison this summer. It all kicks off on December 11 and the team behind Palace Cinemas are the film buffs responsible for bringing the new cinema experience to this former Coburg prison.
Better yet, the new Pentridge Cinema is also hosting a boutique outdoor cinema experience within the historic 1850s bluestone walls of Pentridge. You can watch films under the stars there from 26 December 2020 to 28 March 2021. It is a stellar season of outdoor film screenings, from the location-appropriate Shawshank Redemption and The Rock, to summer modern classics Call Me By Your Name. There will also be family-friendly screenings such as Grease and Spirited Away.
