Chedney Rodgers, marketing director at Mattel, added: “this latest innovation delivers exhilaration and achievement to junior cinema goers.

“Vjunior, driven by Hot wheels is a place where children can let their imagination run wild and share in the joy of creativity and learning in the ultimate interactive cinema experience.”

The cinema will open in Western Sydney on December 1st with the premiere of the new Trolls movie.
