A Breathtaking Keanu Reeves Marathon Is Coming To Sydney And Melbourne

Keanu Reeves is not only the nicest person in this extremely cursed world, he’s also one of the most iconic actors around. He’s also very, very hot. For all of these reasons and more, two cinemas in Australia are putting on a Keanu Reeves-A-Thon and showing all of his best movies.

Ritz Cinemas in Randwick, Sydney and Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn, Melbourne are both taking part. Every Friday night at 9pm they’ll be showing one of Keanu’s cinematic masterpieces, from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure to The Matrix and John Wick.

The marathon kicks off in Melbourne on October 18. It’ll run for nine weeks until December 13, while the seven-week Sydney event starts a little later on November 1.

Sydney, sorry to say that you miss out on Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Constantine, which is a genuine travesty. Forget Melbourne’s superior nightlife, this is the real reason to leave Sydney.

Watch the icon travel through time, take down the devil, drive a bus that couldn’t slow down, rock sunglasses the rest of us can only ever dream of and ride a horse through traffic the way only Keanu can — in absolute style. Plus, The Matrix and John Wick will be shown in 4K in both cities.

Here are the full Keanu Reeves-A-Thon programs for both cities:

  • Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure — October 18
