This is most excellent news. Melbourne and Sydney will soon be blessed with the divine powers of Keanu Reeves on the big screen. Lido Cinemas in Melbourne and Ritz Cinemas in Sydney have announced that for nine glorious Fridays they will screen the films of everyone’s number 1 dreamboat.

Kicking the proceedings off is the seminal slacker hit Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure; followed by Gus Van Sant’s technicolour landmark My Own Private Idaho, Point Blank, the bus that couldn’t slow down— Speed, sci-fi favourite The Matrix, the one film from Reeve’s filmography I will continue to ignore — The Lake House and finally, John Wick.

It all kicks off on November 1st. All Melbourne session times here. Whilst Sydney-siders can plan to cop the Reeves mop here.
