What’s on at the Movies during the Winter School Holidays
A trip to the movies during the school holidays is a great outing for families and with many cinemas now offering cheaper tickets it can be an outing you can afford to do once (or even twice) during the holidays.
The great news is there are so many awesome movies for kids out these school holidays that appeal to the big kids just as much as the little ones! The theme for Winter seems to be sequels and remakes which is great new for fans of Toy Story, Secret Life of Pets and the Lion King. Of course, there is a new Marvel movie release too.
We have made a complete guide of movie release dates over the school holidays, so you and your Brisbane Kids know what is coming up so you don’t miss a thing and you can check them out for yourself below.

The Secret Life of Pets 2
Release Date: 20 June 2019
The Secret Life of Pets 2 sees everyone’s favourite pets return, however there are a few changes since last time we saw them! Max the terrier and Duke must cope with some major life changes when their owner gets married and has a baby. When the family takes a trip to the countryside, nervous Max has numerous run-ins with canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a scary turkey. Luckily for Max, he soon catches a break when he meets Rooster, a gruff farm dog who tries to cure the lovable pooch of his neuroses. Meanwhile, Snowball and his new friend Daisy are trying to rescue a tiger cub who is trapped against his will in a circus.
The Review: We were lucky enough to catch a sneak preview of the Secret Life Of Pets 2 along with 10 other lucky Brisbane Kids families! We have to start off by saying that this is one sequel that is better than the original movie and I loved it more than I thought I would! So many more laughs, so many great characters and a much better story line! In the Secret Life of Pets 2, Max and Duke provide the heart warming moments and story line as they show the lovely bond that develops between child and their pet. Snowball by far provides the most laughs as the lovable bunny that thinks he is a superhero, and proves his value when, along with his new friends Daisy, he takes on the evil circus owner to free a tiger cub. The cinema erupted in laughter at various points throughout the movie and our Brisbane Kids gave it the big thumbs up! It’s a great movie the whole family can watch together these school holidays that will make you want to go home and give your pets a big hug….and question what they have been doing at home while you were all out watching the movie!
