Shore Cinema Williamstown
Check out a movie by the water at Melbourne's newest outdoor cinema.
Not content with screening movies at its regular site in Yarraville, the Sun Theatre has set up shop in Williamstown for a summer of outdoor cinema. And, for an early autumn filled with films under the stars, too — with the new Shore Cinema Williamstown running through until April.
On various nights during its debut season (with evening screenings playing on different days each week), movie buffs will find the projector whirring at the Seaworks Marine Precinct, in the Gantry Plaza right by the water. You'll sit under fairy lights, direct your eyes at the big screen, tuck into choc tops and popcorn from the candy bar, and enjoy food and drinks from nearby cafes and eateries.
Tickets start at $15 for an adult, which covers a spot on the grass — BYO seat. Beanbags can be hired for $20, you can score a chair for two for $45, or you can add some wine and snacks for you and your date for $90.
As for what you'll be watching, the movie lineup includes recent releases such as The Personal History of David Copperfield, Wonder Woman 1984 and The Dry, plus retro titles like Get Out, Isle of Dogs and Mad Max. For Valentine's Day, you can take your special someone to see Romeo + Juliet — or head by the night before for a double of Before Sunrise and Before Sunset.
