Moonlight Cinema is back, bringing the nostalgia of picnics, popcorn, and film-watching amongst Australia’s most idyllic inner-city parklands. The original cinema under the stars will return to Sydney, Western Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and a new venue in Adelaide for this season, Rymill Park/Murlawirrapurka.
Expect a line-up of festive favourites including Love Actually, The Holiday, Home Alone and The Grinch, McDonalds Sing Together sessions where guests can unabashedly sing along to classic hits like Dirty Dancing, as well as Hollywood blockbusters that may have been missed in lock-down such as Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson and Cruella with Emma Stone, to list just a few.
Under balmy summer night skies, each Moonlight location will come to life with on-site activations, food trucks, bars and the comfiest of bean beds. This summer, there are a range of exclusive packages on offer. Relax on a bean bed in AAMI Gold Grass* for the best views and top-notch wait service. Indulge in delicious ice cream in the Connoisseur Lounge, where you’ll have the chance to try their latest decadent collaboration with chocolatier KOKO Black. Or, for the ultimate night out, treat yourself to a Matcha-tini and fully-catered Platinum Experience, presented by Tia Maria**. This year, the Platinum package will include an exclusive grazing box by QT Hotels, featuring locally sourced charcuterie expertly curated by the award-winning QT chefs.
Also, new this season, Moonlight will launch Parlour Lane Fiesta, a food truck offering Mexican-inspired morsels. Guests can grab their nachos and churros and recline happy with a Fat Bastard wine or chilled Byron Bay Larger. Of course, guests can also prepare their own picnics, bring along a bottle of bubbly and enjoy one of Australia’s quintessential summer experiences^. Renowned as a beloved dog-friendly night out, this season you can even book the furriest member of your family a plush dog bean bed thanks to Moonlight’s dog partner, K9 Natural, who will also have the hungry fur-babies covered for movie snacks^^.
