Words by Ashleigh Howarth

It’s almost time for Moreton Bay’s newest cinema to dim the lights and pop the popcorn, but first, they need staff.

Limelight Cinemas General Manager Alexis Poulsen says they are looking to hire 80 people for a wide range of roles when they open in December.

“We’re excited to be bringing movies back to Morayfield, and we’re all about delivering an awesome experience and better deal for this community,” Alexis says.

“Awesome experiences only happen with a great team though, so we’ve started the ultimate talent search for up to 80 local movie lovers to help us get ready for showtime.

“In preparation for our opening in December, we’re currently advertising roles ranging from team members, cooks, duty managers and food and beverage manager.

“It’s a diverse range of opportunities for enthusiastic, outgoing locals to help us welcome local movie lovers back to the big screen after an extensive refurbishment.

“Successful candidates will enjoy a fun and engaging team environment, free movies, great discounts on food and drinks and the potential for growth in an exciting entertainment industry.”

Applications are open at and on

Those wishing to apply must be 15-years-old and over.

Limelight Cinemas already operate at Riverlink Shopping Centre in Ipswich, west of Brisbane, and at South Point Tuggeranong in Canberra.

A complete refurbishment

Construction is still underway at Morayfield with Limelight choosing to do a complete revamp of the space, which was previously home to Birch Carroll and Coyle.

The complex will be transformed into a modern and stylish seven-screen cinema featuring new screens, sound systems and seats.

There are three different ways for movie lovers to experience their favourite flicks, including the Gold Experience, the XD Experience and the Classic Experience.

The Gold Experience is a luxury dine-in cinema experience where patrons can indulge in a drink from the bar, choose from an extensive food and beverage menu, and have your selections delivered directly to your recliner seat.

The XD Experience features wall-to-wall screens, 4K projection, state-of-the-art immersive sound, and your choice of the ‘Premium View’ standard seats or electric recliners.

New screens and sound systems, plus a choice of ‘Premium View’ standard seats or electric recliners can also be found in every cinema as part of the Classic Experience.

In addition to showing all the latest blockbusters, Limelight Cinemas will also feature an array of signature programming and events to Morayfield, including Girls Night Out, Friday Fright Night, BYO Babies, Seniors Morning Tea programs and sensory screenings.

They will also screen live sport, big-screen gaming, sing-alongs and trivia nights.

There will also be a private function room that can be hired for birthdays, staff get-togethers or fundraisers.

More snack options

In addition to the traditional movie snacks like popcorn and choc-tops, movie-goers will also be able to pick up some more snacks with an expanded grab ‘n’ go menu at Ruby’s Kitchen and Bar.

Here, people will also be able to orders things like gourmet pizzas, hot dogs or ice-cold beverages.
