Plaza's cinema to reopen with Hunger Games

DESPITE recurring reports of its run being cut short, Redbank Plaza says Reading Cinemas is set to extend its already lengthy season.

Social media has been bubbling about the cinema closing but the shopping centre says reports of its closure have been greatly exaggerated.

Redbank Plaza manager Belinda Hartas said the cinema had closed but should be ready to reopen for the next instalment of Hunger Games.

The cinema will be closed for a refresh from this week and, subject to finalisation of the lease, is anticipated to open for the excitement of the Hunger Games on November 21.

Ms Hartas said Retail First, which manages Redbank Plaza, hoped the cinemas would remain a part of its family "for the foreseeable future".

"We know how integral this entertainment offering is to our local community and we hope to continue what has been a wonderful relationship with Reading Cinemas for the past 15 years," she said.

"The cinema is widely popular within the local community and a lease renewal would be a great result for the centre and importantly for all our shoppers."
