Summer is in the air, and with it the smell of fresh popcorn, as starlight screenings return to Lido's Rooftop Cinema in Hawthorn. Perched atop the eight-screen picture house overlooking Glenferrie Road, the outdoor screen will light up from next week with a selection of classic and new release movies in the open air.

The Lido on the Roof season kicks off on Thursday, November 16 with Justice League. DC's superhero team-up is one of a number of hotly anticipated summer movies on the program, with other highlights including James Franco's The Disaster Artist, Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water and the critically acclaimed gay romance Call Me By Your Name. Oh, and they're also screening a little indie flick called Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

They're also bringing back their 'cult calendar' selection, with iconic retro titles including Labyrinth (on David Bowie's birthday), The GooniesThe Lion King and The Big Lebowski, plus a sing-a-long screening of Muriel's Wedding. And for those after something a little bit more adult, Fridays will be dedicated to steamy erotic thrillers such as Fatal AttractionBasic Instinct and Eyes Wide Shut.
