Moonlight Cinema 2021
The ever-popular outdoor cinema series is back for its 25th outing.
Moonlight Cinema has returned to the grassy lawns of Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens for 2021. And, this year, it's celebrating its 25th birthday by dishing up a program filled with old-school film favourites. Hitting the outdoor big screen from Thursday, January 7–Sunday, April 25, this year's lineup will see you tucking into plenty of well-loved cinematic classics, along with a few of the new release flicks that have flown under the radar in recent months.
In the classic camp, a heap of rom-coms will help you feel warm and fuzzy, with Pretty In Pink, Mamma Mia and La La Land on the bill. From 2020 and 2021's new releases, there's a little bit of everything. Irish crime caper Pixie keeps the comedy theme going, the scorching Promising Young Woman will screen in the evening air and new Aussie crime drama The Dry will play surrounded by plenty of grass. There's also Lindsay Lohan wearing pink on Wednesdays in Mean Girls, superhero flick Wonder Woman 1984 doing its thing, and Rami Malek belting out the tunes for Bohemian Rhapsody.
It's also worth remembering that the outdoor cinema is BYO — and there'll be food trucks, a bar, snacks and (if you'd like to pay for them) bean bags as well. And, in great news for movie-loving pooches, you can bring them along, too.
