It might be one of Melbourne's most historic movie theatres, but Palace Westgarth will be embracing the new-school this summer, as it kicks off its 2017-18 al fresco cinema series.

Launching this Saturday, December 2, the Capi Outdoor Cinema will make use of the Art Deco icon's backyard and rear wall, operating with high-definition headphones and rocking seats for 30 moviegoers.

The courtyard space has been decked out with vibrant murals and upcycled furniture. Open all day, it's sure to be a comfy spot for pre- or post-film hangs as well.

The program takes its cues from the rest of the Palace family, so expect a solid mix of art-house, new release and independent titles, kicking off at dusk each night. Upcoming films include the heartwarming Wonder, mega blockbuster Star Wars: The Last Jedi, dark comedy Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, and Oscars hopeful The Post.

Of course, it wouldn't be a proper cinema-going experience without some top-notch drinks and snacks, so you'll find a tidy selection of toasties, cheese boards and choc tops, boutique wines and beers, and bottled cocktails from The Everleigh Bottling Co.
