During the warmer months you can’t walk 10 metres in Melbourne without stumbling upon an outdoor cinema. Everything from beachside to rooftop is covered. But one of these outdoor cinemas is not like the others—Gourmet Cinema.

Back again in 2018, Gourmet Cinema will once again be bringing you classic movies matched with great food, and the lineup this year is as good as it gets.

If you’re not familiar with how Gourmet Cinema works, here’s a rundown. The cinema takes place on the lawns of the enormous Caulfield Racecourse, and features food and drinks from four Melbourne restaurants, with one hero restaurant creating a special movie-inspired menu to coincide with the movie playing.

It all kicks off on Thursday 1 March with Hotel Jesus, and a showing of Chef. Hotel Jesus head chef Luke Hammond has put together a menu featuring margaritas, tostadas and a taste of Mexico that you don’t want to miss.

Jimmy Grants, Benny Burger, Uncle, and Hellenic Republic are all on board to keep you full during your favourite film.

Films on show feature:

  • Chef presented by Hotel Jesus
  • Little Miss Sunshine presented by Jimmy Grants
  • Top Gun presented by Benny Burger
  • Sideways presented by Uncle
  • Before Midnight presented by Hellenic Republic
  • La La Land presented by Uncle
  • The Lost Boys presented by Benny Burger
  • Vicky Cristina Barcelona presented by Mamasita

Tickets are on sale from Tuesday 16 January. We recommend reserving yourself a seat on the 196 Below Deck Chair Lawn—where you'll score a Gourmet Cinema Choc Top from our friends at 196 Below.
