One of the city’s most iconic movie theatres is shutting up shop after 20 years!

Dendy Cinema’s Opera Quays location will be closing its curtains next month after the decision to not renew their lease along Sydney’s iconic harbour.

“It is with great sadness that we must inform you that our lease at Opera Quays has not been renewed and we will be closing our doors on February 26th 2020. We’d like to personally thank you for your patronage over the last 20 years and we hope to welcome you at our sister cinema in Newtown,” the company announced on Facebook today.


The Dendy Newtown will remain in operation, offering cinema-goers not only the latest blockbusters but indie films, movie classics, and their Dendy Arts program.

We are definitely going to miss this iconic cinema by the harbour!
