Moonlight Cinema Is Coming Back for Summer 2019

Break out the wine coolers and picnic rugs. Summer is coming.

Can you feel a tingling in your toes as your feet start to defrost? That's the feeling of winter slipping away (or maybe you've been sitting cross-legged for too long) and with its demise comes the return of Australia's beloved Moonlight Cinema.

Ahhh balmy nights on the grass, we have missed you. Heralding the coming of the warmer months, Moonlight Cinema is a summertime tradition and it always nails the balance between new releases and cult classics. The film program is yet to be announced, but we'll keep you updated as soon as it is.

Nosh-wise, Moonlight Cinema will again let you BYO movie snacks and drinks (no alcohol in Brisbane, though), but the unorganised can also enjoy a plethora of snacks from food trucks — perfect, messy treats made for reclining on bean beds. Bean beds and snack trucks, is there anything better?

This season includes screens in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, running from November through to March. Get your pens out and jot down these dates.


Sydney: Nov 28–Mar 29 (Centennial Park)
Melbourne: Nov 28–Mar 29 (Central Lawn at Royal Botanic Gardens)
Perth: Nov 30–Mar 29 (Kings Park and Botanic Garden)
Adelaide: Dec 13–Feb 16 (Botanic Park)
Brisbane: Dec 14–March 29 (Roma Street Parkland)

The Moonlight Cinema kicks off on November 29. For more information and bookings here.
