Movie Experiences During Covid-19 Times
We don’t know about you, but we used to be regular cinema visitors and we sure have been missing Bali cinemas since they closed due to the pandemic. Leave it to the clever Bali businesses though who have created their own style of cinema to keep us all safe and entertained during this time… and just quietly, we hope these events are here to stay!! We have rounded up for you where to catch a movie in Bali right now…

Tamora Gallery, the popular lifestyle shopping destination for residents and tourists of the island of Bali, has chosen to become more family-friendly! As we have described in our blog article “Things to do for kids in Bali”, this shopping mall brings so much into children’s lives… and also it’s not displeasing to their parents that have the chance to rest.
In addition to creative and formative workshops, activities such as dance and music, and a spacious outdoor area where kids can play in complete safety, Tamora Gallery organizes Pop Up Movie Nights at 6.30 pm every Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in the playground area, weather permitting of course!
This project will last 3 months (surely from June to September) and it will air the most famous children’s cartoon such as Nemo (the famous adventures of the little clownfish and his short-term memory-loss friend Dori), Hotel Transylvania (the entire trilogy), Minions (too funny!!), The Lion King (great classic of the big screen), Frozen (brrr… it’s so cold!), Beauty and the Beast (the greatest love story ever) and more.
