Moonlight Cinemas have now popped up at parkland sites across the country. In the open air, a selection of blockbuster films will be screening until the end of March (February for Brisbane). We love this event and are regulars every year!
Here are our picks for the Christmas period:
AUSTRALIA’S HOLLYWOOD TAKEOVER:
The very best of Australia’s cinematic talents will proudly take centre-stage at Moonlight Cinema. Be one of the first to see Geoffrey Rush and Jai Courtney team up for the heart-warming remake of the 1970’s classic Storm Boy; Catch veteran director Bruce Beresford’s tender and funny love letter to 1950’s Sydney with Ladies in Black; and a star-studded cast including Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, Troye Sivan and Joel Edgerton lead Boy Erased, the gut-wrenching tale of a young boy forced into gay conversion therapy in the American South.
Airing the week leading up to the seasonal break – The Nutcracker and the Four Realms and the remake of The Grinch, Love Actually and Elf.
Yeti in Smallfoot, Incredibles 2, Fantastic Beats: The Crimes of Grindelwald and The Greatest Showman.
Except for Brisbane, BYO is available. Upgraded seating areas with wait service, is available and family discounts for a selection of the G and PG rated movies will be on offer, check when booking. You can bring your own food on-site, otherwise there will be a convenient hearty range of stalls serving up food and drink.
