I sent a message to HOYTS cinemas asking if they will be playing Batman '89 and this was their response:
Hi David, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us.
We assure you that your feedback has been discussed by the relevant team and would like to confirm that all films shown in our cinemas are not a selection but what has been provided by the distributors. The films distributed by each distributor are shown through our cinema to meet to popular consumer demand.
We are currently waiting on confirmation from the distributor to confirm if this film will be screening upon our cinemas.
Keep an eye on our ‘Advance Tickets’ page, http://www.hoyts.com.au/movies/advance_tickets.aspx
We hope you enjoy your next cinema experience with us.
On behalf of The Hoyts Guest Experience Team
