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, Cadmans Cottage will become a pop-up openair movie theatre again in 2024. 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 ten sessions over four days between Thursday, July 11–Sunday, July 14 for $2 a ticket, Le Mulled Wine Cinema lets attendees get cosy in chairs (with blankets, of course), and offers up a glass of mulled wine to complete the outdoor film-watching experience.

As for what you'll be watching, if the movies aren't French, they have ties to France in some way. Think: Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge!, the Audrey Tatou-starring Amelie, more Tatou in Coco Before Chanel, Pixar's Ratatouille, Marion Cotillard's Oscar-winning performance in La Vie En Rose and 2024 standout The Taste of Things.
