Mov'In Bed Barangaroo Beach Cinema
Mov'In Outdoor Bed Cinema is taking its mattresses to the beach at Barangaroo for three months.
November 24, 2023
In Australia's crowded outdoor cinema space, no one can accuse the folks at Mov'In of relying on the same old setup year in, year out. Since launching in 2016, the nation's outdoor bed cinema has been regularly coming up with new spins on its concept, because getting folks seeing flicks on a mattress — pillows, blankets and all — under the stars isn't enough. So, Mov'In Boat floated on Darling Harbour. Mov'In Car popped up on Entertainment Quarter's rooftop, and ran Australia's first EV drive-in cinema as well. The latest event: watching movies in bed on the beach at Barangaroo.
Getting its sheets out and projectors whirring for summer, Mov'In Bed Outdoor Cinema's sandy stint runs from Friday, January 12–Sunday, April 14, 2024 at Harbour Park in Barangaroo. And all those white grains beneath your feet? There's a huge 280 tonnes of the stuff, which the pop-up's 150 queen-sized beds sit atop.
Snuggled-up filmgoers can feast their eyes on a 15-metre 4K screen, catching three months of big-name pictures such as The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes, The Marvels, Barbie, Killers of the Flower Moon, John Wick: Chapter 4 and Everything Everywhere All At Once. Other films set to get a-flickering include Studio Ghibli's The Boy and the Heron, No Hard Feelings, Napoleon, the Sydney-shot Anyone But You and Ferrari.
The full program spans new and classic titles, which patrons can pair with skyline views, plus food and drinks delivered to your bed. Dress-up nights are also be on the bill.
Expect DJ-spun tunes, focusing on songs from film soundtracks, upon arrival. No one wandering by will hear a thing once the movie starts playing, however, because Mov'In uses noise-cancelling headphones for every attendee.
Gates open at 6pm, with movies playing from 8.30pm. And price-wise, tickets range from $12–75 per person.
