Thanks to streaming, you can basically watch a movie anywhere you like these days — but there's still nothing quite like feeling the grass beneath your feet and the breeze on your face as the silver screen lights up at an outdoor cinema. That's what Barefoot Cinema serves up, and has since first springing to life in Portsea in 2016. The event had to sit out the past two years due to the pandemic; however, this multi-venue setup is now making its return — including at a brand new venue.

First up, from Wednesday, January 5–Saturday, January 29, Barefoot Cinema is kicking things off in Mount Martha on the Peninsula — which is where you can see old-school delights such as Dirty Dancing, Grease and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, as well as current releases like No Time to Die, The French Dispatch, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Licorice Pizza, The Matrix Resurrections, Encanto, West Side Story and House of Gucci.

Then, from Tuesday, February 1–Saturday, February 26, the event will hit the St Kilda Botanical Gardens for the first time ever. There, you can once again recent and classic flicks aplenty, all under the stars — including some of the aforementioned titles, plus Ghostbusters: Afterlife, King Richard, Scream, Spencer and The 355.

Finally, it's off to the Victorian State Rose Garden at Werribee Park between Tuesday, March 1–Saturday, March 19. The lineup there hasn't yet been revealed, so watch this space.

Although movies are the main attraction, Barefoot Cinema isn't just about watching a film, of course — with the event also featuring live music, food trucks, lawn games, local wines and craft beers.
