New York meets Brisbane with the latest premium cinema at Angelika Film Centre

New York City’s SoHo district landed in Brisbane this past August with the opening of South City Square’s ANGELIKA FILM CENTRE, a state-of-the-art, 8 screen cinema complex that promises a high-end theatrical experience, playing a solid mixture of mainstream and arthouse films.

Originally conceptualised and opened in 1989, The Angelika has been a film-haven for cinema lovers across the United States for over 30 years, and now for the first time ever, Angelika has branched outside of the US to create a premium cinema and entertainment experience for the upcoming South City Square.

Boasting a more intimate theatre experience, the largest of the 8 state-of-the-art, laser projected screens will snuggly hold 100 patrons in incredibly comfortable, leather recliners. Of the remaining 7 screens (of which all have leather recliners), The SoHo Lounge serves as a first-class entrance for 3 premium format themed theatres that envelope movie-goers in the highest level of ambience for a perfect movie-night experience. With the walls plastered with street-art style paintings of iconic movie characters and stars, Angelika’s SoHo Lounge brings an alternative sense of Hollywood that is unique from any other cinema in Australia.

The premium experience of the SoHo Lounge extends past the movie-watching experience with The Highline Terrace balcony bar, nestled above Woolloongabba’s busy city streets. Whether it’s before or after your movie, the Highline Terrace provides the goods in the form of comfy outdoor furniture to nestle in while you take in views of Brisbane city’s skyline.

But a cinema can only be as good as the variety of films that are on show, and The Angelika Film Centre does not disappoint. Not missing a chance to jump on the Barbenheimer train, you can still catch both of those fantastic films in The SoHo Lounge while they’re on the big screen. If independent film is more your style, Celine Song’s critically acclaimed Past Lives has just released in Australia and is not one to miss at Angelika.

While there is concern about films being delayed due to the ongoing strikes (pay your artists, by the way!), Angelika Film Centre will play host to a series of themed events and special screenings including Timeless Tuesday’s showing the 1953 classic Roman Holiday or David Fincher’s cult classic Fight Club, or the Gin-tessential screening of Daniel Craig’s iteration of James Bond in Casino Royale or Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.

ANGELIKA FILM CENTRE is now open in South City Square, Woolloongabba, and you can check session times and purchase tickets here.
