Think watching a movie under the stars is a summer activity? Think again. Braving the elements to catch a film in winter comes with its own rewards: snuggling up next to your nearest and dearest, enjoying the brisk night air and sipping hot mulled wine, for example.
As part of the broader Bastille Festival, the Tallowoladah Lawn outside of the MCA will become a pop-up openair movie theatre. That means settling in for a flick with a view not just of the screen, but vantages out over the Opera House and Sydney Harbour as well.
Screening seven sessions over four days between July 12 to 15, Le Cinema lets attendees get cosy in 100 deck chairs (with blankets, of course), and offers up a glass of mulled wine and popcorn to complete the outdoor film-watching experience. Movies include the Marion Cotillard-starring La Vie En Rose, the animated culinary delight that is Ratatouille and sci-fi fun with Luc Besson's The Fifth Element. Or, let yourself eat cake at a session of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette.
