About This Event
Summer blockbusters and cult classics hit the Botanic Gardens this summer
We never thought we'd see the day but yes, the Moonlight Cinema is returning to Melbourne this summer. There's nothing quite like a film under the stars in the evening cool of the Botanic Gardens so that's exactly what we'll be doing when this alfresco cinema returns in January.
The January line-up has now been announced for Melbourne and includes classics like 10 Things I Hate About You, Dirty Dancing, Toy Story and Love Actually, plus new flicks such as Unhinged (starring Russell Crowe), queer holiday romcom The Happiest Season and Penguin Bloom (based on the true story of a family that adopted an injured magpie chick). Moonlight Cinema will also host a dog-friendly screening of the Top Dog Film Festival at the end of January.
As always, the Moonlight Cinema food truck and bar can supply you with comestibles, but you're welcome to BYO food and drinks, too.
Those looking to splurge can opt for the gold grass experience where you'll sloth out on bean bag beds with a premium view of the big screen. You don't even have to get up for movie snacks or drinks as waiters will happily take your order.
As this is post-lockdown, Moonlight Cinema has confirmed there will be a range of hygiene and safety protocols in place at the venue, including limits on capacity and physical distancing.
