The Gold Coast’s first Dendy Cinemas will feature a 12-screen complex, bringing a broad range of international films, from arthouse productions through to theatre and opera screenings. Being an independent cinema, Dendy curates its content to ensure a differentiated movie offering – so you can expect an intriguing collection of films and productions to roll out.
You’ll have to contain your excitement for a little longer yet – construction of Southport’s Dendy complex is expected to begin next year, and will be operational from 2020. Once developed, the cinemas will sit within the Queen Street Village mixed-use community, alongside three residential buildings, a 160-room Mercure hotel, a medical centre and commercial office space. This is the third Queensland complex for Dendy, which also operates a 10-theatre complex in Coorparoo and the boutique Portside cinema in Hamilton.
