A hawker-inspired street food festival
Auburn Redyard has had a facelift with a new alfresco precinct and an upgrade to Reading Cinemas with the introduction of a Titan Luxe auditorium, featuring a massive 24metre widescreen, recliner seats and blockbuster sound.
In celebration of the unveiling of these changes, a spicy and flavoursome street food festival will take place over the weekend of 20 October. The Auburn Spice Market will be slinging Asian food, traditional Mexican food, pizza and a whole lot more served from popular food trucks.
Operating from 12pm to 8pm both days, the line-up of vendors includes:-
Sol y Luna – rolling in with their traditional Mexican cuisine and unique folk art
In conjunction with the market, Reading Cinemas are also kicking off their new International Films Program (starting Friday evening) with Cannes Film Festival award-winner Shoplifters, a Japanese tale of a couple stuck with part-time jobs and inadequate incomes who avail themselves of the fruits of shoplifting to make ends meet.
Additional films over the weekend, from countries around the globe, include Lebanon's The Insult and Palestine's Wajib – The Wedding Invitation. Click here for the full program. It's all part of the cinema's ongoing commitment to diversity in film that will continue for years to come.
With its shopping, permanent restaurants, interactive fountain and lighted trees at night, Auburn Redyard is becoming a vibrant hot spot in Sydney's west.
