Come summer in Melbourne, you won't just see stars on cinema screens — you'll sit beneath them while you're watching a movie. That's what Rooftop Cinema promises each and every year, and the first part of its 2018–19 program certainly delivers. First stop: Ryan Gosling in Damien Chazelle's First Man.

Kicking off on the first day of summer (conveniently a Saturday) and running through until March 2019 (with the second half of the program still to be announced), there's plenty more movie fun where that came from. Haven't had a chance to see one of this year's most hyped films, A Star Is Born? Keen to check out Nic Cage bloodied in one of the best horror films of this 2018? Want pretend you're at Live Aid watching Freddy Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody? You'll find them all on the lineup.

Don't forget that checking out classics on the big screen is all part of the Rooftop Cinema experience as well, though. This year's retro contingent includes tributes (Labyrinth, Heathers and Rocky), all manner of Christmas hijinks (Love Actually and Home Alone) and three nights of Leo (The Basketball Diaries, The Beach and Shutter Island).

If there's ever been a reason to spend your evenings outdoors for the next few months, this is it. Rooftop Cinema takes place in the Melbourne CBD, on top of Curtin House, Swanston Street (between Little Bourke and Lonsdale Streets). The bar opens daily between 11am and 1am, with films starting at 9.30pm in December and January. The February and March program will be announced in late January.
