Haven't managed to get to the cinemas to see all the latest blockbusters yet? Yeah us neither—so we might just catch them all at Moonlight Cinema, which is heading back to town this year and cranking up their projectors for a summer of movies under the stars.
Taking over The Amphitheatre at Roma Street Parklands from the end of November, you can bet the outdoor cinema will be serving up some absolute cracker blockbusters and festive season films, with retro classics like Dirty Dancing, family favourites like Harry Potter & The Philosopher's Stone, The Greatest Showman and The Boss Baby: Family Business, and newer flicks like Free Guy, Eternals and Red Notice all on the bill.
In the week leading up to Christmas, you can also catch a line up of festive classics, including Love Actually, Elf, Home Alone and Die Hard (don't try telling us Die Hard isn't a Christmas movie). Love Actually under the stars, drink in hand? Sounds like a merry Christmas to us.
As usual, you'll be able to unroll a picnic blanket and throw down a few pillows to relax on with your mates, or go VIP and opt for one of the plush bean bags. If you can't be bothered packing your own picnic to bring along, there'll be an onsite food truck, Parlour Lane Fiesta, dishing up tasty Mexican eats and a licensed bar for cheeky drinks.
Best of all, Moonlight Cinemas is dog-friendly, so you can bring along your fur-baby—this year you can even book them their own dog bean bag, and order up movie snacks from K9 Natural so they can get the full cinema experience.
