Dendy comes to Canberra

Prepare for coolness...

Press Release - For Immediate Circulation

DENDY CINEMAS AND ELECTRIC SHADOWS CINEMA COMBINE TO CREATE A NEW CINEMA VENUE IN CANBERRA CITY.

Electric Shadows Cinema will be working with the independent cinema group, Dendy Cinemas, to establish a new multi-screen cinema complex in the Section 84 development, on Bunda Street, Canberra City.

The cinema complex, expected to open late in 2006, will have 9 screens and will program a wide selection of "alternative" art-house films as well as the best of mainstream releases.

Dendy Cinemas operates the prestigious Opera Quays complex and the Dendy Newtown in Sydney, plus cinemas in Brisbane, Byron Bay and central Melbourne. Canberra will be a significant addition to their group.

Dendy also has a film distribution arm that has been responsible for many notable releases at Electric Shadows in recent years, including SUPER SIZE ME, THE WEEPING CAMEL, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES, and the French film, LOOK AT ME.

Andrew Pike of Electric Shadows says "This is great news for film culture in Canberra. Electric Shadows has had a wonderful relationship with Canberra's audiences for more than 25 years. This new cinema complex will ensure that the city will have a world-class, high quality cinema to continue the tradition into the next generation."

The new cinema will marry Dendy's national reach and resources, and their commitment to quality and diverse cinema, to Electric Shadows' rich local tradition. The physical attractions of the new venue will include comfortable seating, a licensed bar, appropriate disabled access, substantial adjacent parking and a sophisticated interior decor.

In the meantime, Electric Shadows will continue as usual at its current venue.
