Residents of the suburbs around Centenary have a new and convenient lifestyle precinct to regularly visit as the second stage of DFO Jindalee has been completed.
On Boxing Day, DFO Jindalee marked the completion with the opening of the six-theatre, state-of-the-art leisure site, Reading Cinemas. It’s the first cinema complex to open in the suburbs in 60 years.
The expansive movie house features a TITAN LUXE cinema with immersive Dolby Atmos surround sound, a reclining option on every seat in every auditorium facing a 23m screen, wider platforms throughout the cinemas for added customer comfort, and a bar and lounge area.
Reading Cinemas is the wonderful trimming complementing the cafes and restaurants at DFO Jindalee’s dining precinct and a suitable segue for shoppers at the retail sites, who might want a few hours of respite at the movies.
“DFO Jindalee was originally created to focus on outlet shopping, but this redevelopment has improved the centre to deliver premium leisure, sports and fashion brand outlets, plus an entertainment and dining precinct that will offer so much more to the customers who travel as far away as Toowoomba to regularly visit and shop,” Development spokesperson Michael Tree, Director of Asset Management for Trident Advisory Group, said.
“Stage 2 will complete the centre with the new Reading Cinemas complex; new lighting and skylights over a simplified floor plan and redirected shopping flow; the first fresh food retailer at the centre in Amazons Family Fresh Markets; plus a new dining precinct with fresh external green space/landscaping; to result in 60 specialty and dining retailers plus four major retailers (Nike, Goodlife, BCF and Reading Cinemas) and over 900 car parks.“
In early 2021, DFO Jindalee is set to open Yiros Shop, whilst a few more cafes and restaurants will fill up the remaining leases. As of January this year, the shopping centre has some of these fully-operational establishments:
- Amazons Family Fresh Markets
- Jaqui E
- Jay Jays
- Off the Pallet
- Reading Cinemas
- Vape Cloud & Lotto
More establishments will be finalised and announced in the coming months.
