Moonlight Cinema Sydney & all around Australia!
The Summer of freedom is fast approaching, there is a feeling of celebration in the air and with it comes the return of Australia’s favorite outdoor cinema. Moonlight Cinema is back, and co-dependent COVID pups needn’t stay at home.
The original cinema under the stars has returned to six venues Australia wide, in Sydney, Western Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and a new venue in Adelaide for this season, Rymill Park/Murlawirrapurka. Sessions run until April 2022 across different dates nationally.
Movie goers can expect a line-up of new releases including Dear Evan Hansen, based on the Tony-Award winning musical, 60’s horror film, Last Night in Soho starring Golden Globe Award winning actress, Anya Taylor-Joy, Netflix’s action comedy Red Notice starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, Marvel Studio’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage as well as family hits Clifford the Big Red Dog and Disney’s Encanto.
Also making the program are Hollywood blockbusters that may have been missed in lock-down such as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings with Simu Liu and Awkwafina, Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson, Cruella with Emma Stone and Free Guy with Ryan Reynolds. As Christmas approaches, a string of festive favourites will show including Love Actually, The Holiday, Home Alone, The Grinch That Stole Christmas and Die Hard. Not to be missed for the retro-film fans, McDonalds Sing Together sessions will also be hosted where guests can unabashedly sing along to classic hits like ‘The Time of my Life’ in Dirty Dancing.
John Boero, General Manager of Entertainment Operations, Event Hospitality and Entertainment said, “After a pretty tough and isolated few months for many Australians, we are particularly excited for the return of Moonlight Cinema. Moonlight is such a quintessential Australian experience, and it’s going to feel all the more special this summer to have family and friends reunite over picnics and films at our beautiful parkland venues.”
Thanks to Green Partner, Garnier, Moonlight Cinema will be greener than ever this season, with all 470 screenings nationwide powered by 100% renewable energy from solar panels. The renewable energy will be provided from Atlas Renewables’ Solar Pivotel Satellite project in Dubbo, NSW, which will ensure minimal greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels.
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 for humans and their four-legged friends. This summer, there are a range of exclusive packages on offer:

Moonlight has implemented COVID-safe initiatives in line with local health guidelines and recommendations, including social-distancing, capacity limits and increased hygiene measures. Taking place in sprawling parklands and under a ceiling of stars, guests can return to Moonlight with peace of mind ready to enjoy an evening outdoors with their loved ones.
