Movies Return to Morayfield

Limelight Cinemas promise to give Moreton movie-goers a better experience and a better deal.

The wait is over for Moreton residents as the doors swing open to Limelight Cinemas.

Located within Morayfield Shopping Centre, Limelight Cinemas is promising to bring some “WOW” back to moviegoing in the area.

“We believe our unique combination of premium cinemas, better food & drink options, and better value for money, will give people a reason to return to the movies these holidays, and to keep coming back.”

In a total transformation of the former BC&C cinemas, Limelight has created a stylish, state-of-the-art 7-screen cinema complex, with a range of premium cinema formats, luxury seating options, a vibrant casual bar and cafe, as well as private party and function spaces.

‘We know the Morayfield community has been looking forward to having their own local cinema again and we’ve been working hard to ensure we deliver them a better experience, and a better deal. We believe our unique combination of premium cinemas, better food & drink options, and better value for money, will give people a reason to return to the movies these holidays, and to keep coming back,” says Ross Entwistle, Limelight Cinemas’ Founder & CEO.

In addition to playing all the latest Blockbusters, Limelight plans to inject some fun signature programming and events into its schedule at Morayfield. “We’re all about celebrating and elevating movies on the big screen. From movie themed cocktails and menus, to trivia nights, sing-along screenings, dress-up previews or seniors morning teas, it’s all an opportunity to build a spirit of fun and community through cinema”.

Limelight fielded more than 800 applications for jobs ranging from managers to cooks to frontline cinema workers. “We’ve been totally blown away by the enthusiasm this community has shown us already, and we’ve pulled together an amazing local team who can’t wait to welcome everyone with a smile” says Alexis Poulsen, Limelight Cinemas’ General Manager.

Morayfield is the third location for Limelight Cinemas and its second in Queensland. Their first site launched in Canberra 13 years ago with James Cameron’s original Avatar and coincidentally the highly anticipated sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water, is set to be the first major blockbuster released in the opening weeks of Limelight Cinemas Morayfield.
