Bustling indie distrib/exhib Ronin Films, flush from its success with “Strictly Ballroom” this year, has expanded its Sydney exhib interests by acquiring full ownership of three key arthouse screens.
It brings the indie up to a circuit of seven screens.
Ronin has acquired the Academy Twin in Sydney’s inner eastern suburbs and the Walker solo in north Sydney; both are highly popular venues. Previously Ronin was a partner in the Academy with another indie distrib, Premium Films.
Ronin also has a twin in Canberra, another screen there which it programs, plus a joint venture site, the Longford, in Melbourne.
