Get ready to stare at a 350-square-metre screen rising from the harbour as the Westpac Openair Cinema returns to take care of your summer viewing plans with a jam-packed lineup of new, recent and classic movies.
Thanks to its spot at Mrs Macquaries Point, Westpac Openair has spectacular panoramic views of the city, the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, which is one big part of the attraction, of course. But so is feasting your eyes on the event's hefty program. The cinema kicked off this year on Tuesday, December 15 before taking a two-week break due to Sydney's recent COVID-19 outbreak. With the northern beaches lockdown ending, the openair cinema is now recommencing on Wednesday, January 13 and will run through until Tuesday, February 23 with plenty of films still in store.
In the brand new camp, Australian frontier western High Ground and the Eric Bana-starring The Dry are must-sees. You can also check out women's surfing documentary Girls Can't Surf and witness the cathartic power of befriending a magpie in Penguin Bloom. Fancy combining movies and music? New documentary The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart will fill your night with classic disco tunes as it steps through the eponymous band's full career and roster of hits.
Retro hits like The Devil Wears Prada, Pulp Fiction and Grease are all copping screenings if you want to relive your favourite flicks on the big screen.
Food-wise, you'll be tucking into ready-to-collect gourmet picnic hampers by Kitchen by Mike and its chef Mike McEnearney. Plus, there's a bar serving up wine, beer, cocktails and non-alcoholic options.
Tickets are on sale now. Head to the pop-up cinema's website to browse the full program and plan your summer night viewing.
