New movies kick off school holidays

AS the school holidays begin, there's a marvellous line-up of top movies this week at the Majestic Theatre in Malanda.

First up is the new fabulous family animated adventure comedy ‘Sonic The Hedgehog 2’ – if you enjoyed the first Sonic in 2020, you'll love this one. 

Also new on screen is the action adventure drama ‘Morbius’, from The Spiderman universe, starring Jared Leto and Michael Keaton. 

There is a special movie for those who love animal stories. This is the comedy ‘Dog’ – which is great entertainment for all. You can find all the session times and information on the Majestic website at


After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is ready for more freedom, and Tom and Maddie agree to leave him home while they go on vacation. But, no sooner are they gone, when Dr. Robotnik comes back, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to both build and destroy civilizations. 

Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. Being directed by Jeff Fowler, and starring Jim Carrey, James Marsden, and Ben Schwartz. 


Two former Army Rangers are paired against their will on the road trip of a lifetime. Army Ranger Briggs (Channing Tatum) and Lulu (a Belgian Malinois dog) buckle into a 1984 Ford Bronco and race down the Pacific Coast in hopes of making it to a fellow soldier's funeral on time. Along the way, they'll drive each other completely crazy, break a small handful of laws, narrowly evade death, and learn to let down their guards in order to have a fighting chance of finding happiness. 


Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.
