Dendy Cinemas expands

21 April, 2015 by Press Release

The Dendy/Icon Group is proud to announce the opening of Dendy Cinemas Coorparoo Square in December 2016.

This new cinema complex will house seven standard screens and three Dendy Premium Lounge screens which feature fully reclining luxury leather seating and a pre-screening premium dining and bar lounge that offers seasonal gourmet menus with beer and wine pairing.


Located in the soon-to-be-developed Coorparoo Square precinct, this will be the fifth location in the existing Dendy Cinemas stable; and the second Brisbane site.

As with all Dendy Cinemas locations, Dendy Coorparoo Square will exhibit the best in quality feature film, documentary and performing arts content from around the world. The Dendy/Icon Group proudly supports local filmmaking, arts and community initiatives across all of its destinations.

Founded over 70 years ago, Dendy Cinemas currently operates 27 screens across four fully licensed locations. These include Sydney sites Dendy Newtown and Dendy Opera Quays; Dendy Portside in Brisbane (soon to be joined by Coorparoo Square) and in the nation’s capital, Dendy Canberra.

The Dendy/Icon Group is one of Australia’s leading independent cinema and film distributors and comprises Dendy Cinemas, video on demand service, Dendy Direct and Icon Film Distribution.

CEO of the Dendy/Icon Group, Greg Hughes commented, “In the lead up to what will be our tenth year of operation in Brisbane, we are excited to be partnering with Honeycombes Property Group and Australand to bring this new development to the people of Coorparoo. As a suburb that continues to experience residential growth and serves as an existing entertainment hub for the surrounding areas, Coorparoo was a natural choice for us to complement the existing Dendy Cinemas Portside at Hamilton.

"This, coupled with the exciting development plans for the area ensured the location as a strong fit for the quality entertainment experience that is the Dendy brand – and which now includes our dynamic video on demand service Dendy Direct.”

Dendy Direct, which has been available to consumers since 2014, presents curated collections of quality cinema from all around the globe in a fresh and exciting way. This on demand movie service provides consumers with an all-encompassing experience of the Dendy brand at home or on-the-go, creating an exciting synergy between exhibition and digital consumption.
