Sure, going to the movies with a big box of buttered popcorn and a glass of wine is a nice mid-week treat. But for anyone wanting to dial things up or notch, or just channel Humphrey Bogart, we may have just found Sydney's ultimate movie night.
Restaurant Hubert has revived its Magnums and Movies night for another season. Hosted in the venue's extra cool underground cinema "Theatre Royale" (if you know, you know), the evening includes cocktails, canapes, popcorn, a full buffet dinner and dessert and, of course, free-flowing magnums of wine and a retro film.
Movies on the line-up this year are all perfectly aligned with Restaurant Hubert's slick speakeasy aesthetic. Across the next few months, you'll have the opportunity to wine and dine while watching the likes of Casablanca, The Blues Brothers and Leon the Professional.
Being one of Sydney's greatest restaurants, there are some foodie flicks on the roster too—one of our faves, Chef will screen later in the year in July, and there's also The Trip to Italy and Chocolat on offer.
Complete with red velvet curtains and candlelight, we can't imagine a more romantic spot to be.
