Bathe-In Cinema at Peninsula Hot Springs 2021
Soak in the hot springs under the stars and in front of the big screen
When Peninsula Hot Springs unveiled its revamped facilities in 2018, the acclaimed Fingal spot added something extra exciting — especially if you're keen to pair your soak with some entertainment. At the Mornington Peninsula getaway's outdoor Bath House Amphitheatre, you can now not only relax in the 39-degree geothermal pool in the evening air, but also direct your eyes at a movie on the big screen while you're there.
The Peninsula Hot Springs bathe-in cinema is all about getting blissful in warm water while watching movies that explore themes of connection, nature and laughter. A different film plays every Friday night in February, as well as on Sunday, February 14 as well — and, for its 2021 run, the site is doing something different with its lineup.
Until January 31, you can hit up the venue's Facebook page to vote for your choice of movies. Two options are available each week, and it's a smartly curated range whichever one you pick. Do you prefer Sixteen Candles or Ferris Bueller's Day Off? Sliding Doors or Bridget Jones' Diary? The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert or The Sapphires? They're just some of the hard decisions you'll have to make.
The finalised lineup will be announced afterwards — and then you'll just have to choose the best date to head along.
Even better — catching a flick is included in the regular Bath House bathing price, which'll set you back $45 per person.
