Films surrounded by Sydney Harbour and rollercoasters.
The past month of wet weather — it rained 23 out of 31 days in March — has been a real buzzkill (nay, disaster) for outdoor events in Sydney. But we've got a good feeling about April, and so do the folks at Luna Park as they prepare to launch their brand new rooftop cinema.
Launching an outdoor cinema in April is ambitious, but it's sure to be one worth braving questionable weather for; from the rooftop of Luna Park you'll have an unobstructed view of a lit-up Sydney Harbour. Plus, they'll provide blankets to keep you cosy and noise-cancelling headphones so you can hear the film over the clamour of the Wild Mouse.
Over the course of three weeks (which coincides with school holidays), the cinema will show a mix of new releases, family-friendly films and the requisite Dirty Dancing. Full program is below.
