The program features a mix of new releases including The Social Network, which follows the grand plans that transformed a geek into a 22 year old billionaire; the final instalment of the Harry Potter cinematic phenomenon - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; The Tourist starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie plus cult hits and favourites such as Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction and the Molly Ringwald 1980's cult classic The Breakfast Club.

According to the website: "The Bondi Openair program is not what you'd usually expect in mainstream cinema, and is full of feature films to provoke, engage and inspire audiences. There's something for every film lover; action, comedy, romance, drama and horror genres from summer new releases to arthouse films, and cult favourites."

The cinema season will kick off with opening night film Gainsbourg. According to the website is: "From first-time director Joann Sfar ... a glimpse into the life of influential French singer Serge Gainsbourg, a lifetime filled with music, war, and glittering women from Brigitte Bardot to Juliette Greco.
As Parisian as a curling spiral of cigarette smoke, GAINSBOURG follows the life of French singer Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino), from growing up in 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris through his successful song-writing years in the 1960s to his death in 1991 at the age of 62."

Cinemagoers can relax with gourmet-style food and beverages, while listening to the sunset sounds of acoustic sets in the courtyard amphitheatre of the Bondi Pavilion.

Before each film starts at sunset, Bondi Openair presents local musicians playing on the Sunset Stage, including Jack Carty, Ashleigh Mannix, Nick van Breda and Six String Karma.
