The bean beds are fluffed, the lawns have been manicured and the silver screens are sparkling, ready to be lit up for Moonlight Cinema’s nineteenth season in 2014/15.
Sydney’s favourite and biggest outdoor film extravagazana—Moonlight Cinema—shows advance screenings, new releases and cult favourites all summer long. On gorgeous rolling lawns, film-lovers can recline on a picnic rug underneath the stars and catch a flick on the big screen for the quintessential summer cinema experience.
Drum roll please…the coming season dates are locked in: Sydney, 11 December 2014 – 29 March 2015 on the lawns of Belvedere Amphitheatre in Centennial Park.
Saturday night live music sessions this season will be more than enough reason to get a big group of friends together and get there early. Bring some dips and cheese, pack a bottle or two of wine and enjoy some tunes as the sun goes down before the film. Barefoot dancing on the grass is almost mandatory.
No time to pack a picnic basket? No worries! A new LA-style food truck will be serving up tantalising street fare at Moonlight Cinema nationally, adding a little extra pizzazz to the usual box of popcorn.
To toast the beginning of a long summer of cinema under the stars, Moonlight Cinema will be hosting a glittering red carpet affair, too, with celebrity guests adding a bit more star power to the already starlit event.
Returning this season will be the ever-popular ‘Doggie Nights’ for film-loving pooches and their humans to catch a movie together, as well as everyone’s favourite cult classic nights and special themed screenings.
As always, Moonlight Cinema’s ‘Gold Grass’ offers the ultimate outdoor cinema experience; the perfect treat for someone special in your life. With reserved bean beds in a premium viewing location, and wait service, you won’t even have to get up from your bean bed!
Moonlight Cinema brings the festival atmosphere to film-watching. Gates open an hour-and-a-half before the film starts, so grab all your mates and loved ones for a night of summer fun, food and film under the stars!
