Calling all fairytale fanatics. That includes your princess-adoring kiddos, right? If the word “Disney” is part of the daily conversation in your house, have we got news for you!

The magic of Disney is coming to a theatre near you this July & August! Each weekend from Saturday 30 July through Sunday 28 August grab the kids and enjoy the Disney Fairytale Film Festival, exclusively brought to you by Event Cinemas, Greater Union, Birch Carroll & Coyle and Village Cinemas.

The festival features Disney favourites, such as Maleficent, Enchanted, Cinderella and Into The Woods. Not only can the kids relive their memories of seeing these fab films, but they can also get a special sneak peek into Disney’s latest film, Pete’s Dragon.


Featuring the classic tale (in a completely reimagined way), the film brings the adventures of an orphaned boy and his best friend (a dragon) to the big screen. The preview will be held on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August.

Tickets to this not-to-miss event (especially if your little one is a Disney fan, or should we say fanatic?) are $10 a piece (or $30 for a Season Pass), and can be purchased online at the Event Cinema or Village Cinema websites.

The festival is on at all participating Event, Greater Union and BBC Cinemas (excluding George Street, Myer Centre, Townsville City, Cairns City, Wollongong, Newcastle, Skyline, Darwin City, Mackay City and Toowoomba Strand).

    Pete’s Dragon, my kids & I saw the shorts when we were at the movies last week and it looks like a great movie! Plus it’s the only one I haven’t seen.

  3. Michelle Green Reply

    I haven’t seen Into The Woods yet and would really love to. Maleficent is a fantastic movie, saw it in the cinema and it was wonderful!

  4. Into the woods as I have seen the other films but didn’t get a chance to see this one.

  5. Ying Ying TAN Reply

    Absolutely love to watch ‘Enchanted’ – the story gives me a sense of curiosity to find out how a traditional Disney Princess can live in modern day New York. Its also the only movie our whole family have not watch;)

  6. Crystal Adams Reply

    I missed seeing Maleficent last time it came out and would love to see it on the big screen

  7. Harry Varvaressos Reply

    Maleficent – as wonderful as the Disney classics are, I really enjoy the way in which these stories can be reinvented in dark, mysterious ways, such as this one. Also Angelina Jolie is such a wonderful performer. 🙂

  8. Ashley Beech Reply

    I haven’t watched Into the Woods yet but love Emily Blunt so would love to see this. IF you were to ask the kids I think they would just say all of them!

  9. Lyndall Crisp Reply

    Would love to Enchanted, I haven’t had the privilege of seeing this yet!

    Would love to see them all, but if I have to pick just one – would have to be Into the Woods – love seeing musicals on the big screen and to be able to share with my girls.

  32. Vanessa Di Cicco Reply

    I actually can’t wait to see Pete’s Dragon! It was my favourite book as a child, and the cartoon version was wonderful. When I saw the preview for Disney’s latest remake of the movie, it sent chills down my spine!

  33. I’d like to see Into the Woods, because it sounds deliciously scary!

  34. Barbara Fehmel Reply

    Pete’s Dragon, looks so exciting even for me a Great Grandmother who knows that her adorable twin Great Granddaughters would love all these movies.

  35. Trudy Spreadborough Reply

  37. Maleficent looks like a fairy tale that my sons and I could enjoy!

  38. Cinderella, because I saw it with my mum last year when she visited from the UK but would love to take my son to see it too 🙂

  39. Enchanted (or any really love movies) because who doesn’t like to be enchanted?

  40. I would love to take my daughter to see Cinderella. We love our princess movies and as my daughter is dressing up as Cinderella most days, she would love a treat to the cinema to see her favourite film

    Maleficent…I really love how it was reimagined and that true loves kiss was like that of a mother to her child..rather than a prince..was just beautiful, it’s how I feel about my children, they are my loves.

    Seeing Angelina Jolie in this part would be really interesting, as I haven’t seen her act this type of character. I really believe she could pull it off just in her looks alone!

    I’d love to see Cinderella as I was sick when it was on at the movies so I missed out!!

  70. Alicia Bardsley Reply
