Parramatta's outdoor bed cinema.
Ever been at an outdoor cinema, and wished you could just jump into bed? Well, of course you have — bed is the one thing we can rely on to always be there for us, and we all wish it could follow us around for intermittent lie-downs. That's presumably why the geniuses at Mov'In Bed Cinema decided to incorporate beds into their outdoor setup when they launched the event back in April. Well, that, and they're probably aware of the struggles of keeping your head propped up on a packet of chips while lying on a picnic rug trying to drink wine. And, after a wildly successful, sold-out debut season, they're bringing back the beds.
Mov'In Bed Cinema (previously known as PicNic Cinema) will take over The Crescent at Parramatta Park for an extended season of 45 days in March and April 2017. Instead of just the usual picnic rug and bean bag sitcho, the cinema will bring in a whopping 150 queen size beds to relax on. And because it's happening at the end of summer when the nights are cooling down a little, you'll even get a blankie in case it gets chilly.
Next year's film program is quite varied and international, with everything from Star Wars: Rogue One to Studio Ghibli's Princess Mononoke to Oscar-nominated Turkish film, Mustang. The food lineup was similarly diverse last season, with Cuban, African, Brazilian and Lebanese dishes on rotation, but the edibles have not yet been confirmed for 2017. Tickets are on sale now for $34.90 per person, which gets you a spot in bed and a pillow and blanket. Better snap them up quickly though — last season sold out in about two weeks.
