Get Ready for Movies Under the Stars: Moonlight Cinema Has Revealed Its 2022–23 Dates
Mark your diary: Moonlight Cinema is back for another summer.
October 25, 2022
Can you feel a tingling in your toes as your feet start to defrost? That's the feeling of winter slipping away, or maybe you've been sitting cross-legged for too long. Either way, with the cold weather fading into the past for another year comes the return of a warm-weather favourite: Australia's beloved Moonlight Cinema.
Ahhh balmy nights on the grass, we have missed you. Heralding the arrival of the sunnier months, Moonlight Cinema is a summertime tradition that will make its usual annual comeback at the end of 2022, then roll into 2023. As it always does, it'll hit up screens in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth for a few months of movies in the open air, under the stars and soaking in another Aussie summer.
Nosh-wise, Moonlight Cinema will again let you BYO movie snacks and drinks (no alcohol in Brisbane, though), but the unorganised can also enjoy a plethora of bites to eat from food trucks — perfect, messy treats made for reclining on bean beds.
The overall season runs from November through to March, although it varies city by city. As for what'll be screening, expect to hear what's on the bill closer to the outdoor cinema's return for the year — before the season kicks off in Brisbane and Sydney on Thursday, November 24, obviously.
And, while the 2022–23 locations haven't yet been confirmed, Brisbane's season tends to pop up in Roma Street Parkland, Sydney's in Centennial Park, Perth's in Kings Park and Botanic Garden, Adelaide's in Rymill Park and Melbourne's in the Royal Botanic Gardens.
