Here's one of the absolute best things about being a movie lover: you're never short on stuff to watch. And, because where you see something can have a big imprint on your viewing experience, you're rarely lacking great places to get your cinema fix. Sydney's latest: The Rocks Laneway Cinema.

This pop-up outdoor picture theatre did its thing all summer long, but its March season before it says farewell for the rest of autumn and winter is truly something special. On four Wednesday nights from March 8–29, it's playing a 'Girls Rule' lineup — for free, with no bookings required. From 7.30pm each week, you can lock your eyes on the big screen and enjoy a movie fave celebrating talented ladies, all timed to kick off on International Women's Day.

When it comes to the films flickering across the screen in Atherden Street, it's an impressive retro lineup. The program starts with 80s favourite 9 to 5 — what a way to see a movie! — then moves on to Legally Blonde, Clueless and Thelma and Louise.

If you're the kind of cinemagoer that needs snacks and sips, too, the venues around laneway will have plenty to eat and drink on offer. That means making a date with spots such as Libano Mexicano, Caminetto Restaurant, P'Nut Street Noodles and The Mercantile Hotel. Obviously, you'll need your wallet for whatever tempts your tastebuds.
