If you're a movie lover in Melbourne, then you always know when the warm weather arrives — and you look forward to it. As soon as the conditions allow, the city's outdoor cinema season begins, filling spring and summer with flicks under the stars.

That's what's on the agenda in Elsternwick from Thursday, October 27, when the Classic Rooftop Cinema restarts its projector for another go-around. This year, it's kicking things off with gay rom-com Bros, and will then keep screening new and classic highlights — and festival flicks, too — from there.

Also on the Classic's openair lineup for 2022–23 so far, taking over its towering outdoor screen: the 1950s-style thrills of Don't Worry Darling, horror standouts Barbarian and Sissy, the George Clooney- and Julia Roberts-starring Ticket to Paradise, and murder-mystery Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

Or, there's also the period-set Mrs Harris Goes to Paris and Armageddon Time, upcoming superhero sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and a festive-season showing of Die Hard.

Sessions run depending on the weather, so take that into consideration. Fancy a drink — or just stopping by for one without seeing a film? The bar runs from 4–8pm Friday–Sunday, and is open to everyone. Or, it starts pouring at 7.30pm on weekdays just for ticketholders.
