Our favourite outdoor cinemas in Sydney

One of the best things about summer in Sydney is the outdoor cinema season. Forget the stuffy cinema with popcorn; pick-up your best beach chair, a comfy cushion or your picnic blanket, pack some wine and cheese and enjoy a movie under the stars!


Clearly Sydney’s favourite outdoor cinema spot with glittering sights of the city from Mrs Macquaries Point’s in the Royal Botanic Garden. It is honestly a once-in-a-lifetime experience with a panoramic view of the Opera and the Bridge framing the 350-square-metre screen that rises from the harbour. The event usually runs in January and February so if you are coming to Sydney on those dates, mark it down in your agenda as a must-do! With an array of snacks, shared plates, meals, fine desserts cocktails, wine, beer and spirits this top-class event offers dining and drinking options to suit all tastes.

From November to March, the Moonlight Cinema sets its screen up in Centennial Park, at the Belvedere Amphitheatre (Broome Avenue). Kick your shoes off and book your bean bed for a super chilled experience in between the majestic 100-year-old trees. A food truck and a licensed bar are available for snack time. Book your tickets and view the program HERE.


Located close to the Bondi Pavilion, this set-up makes a great beach cinema experience, two steps from Australia's most famous strip of sand. With freshly-cooked cuisine, a fully-stocked bar and a range of comfortable seating options, it is a great cinema experience with friends or family. Book your tickets and view the program HERE.
