Le Cinema - Mulled Wine Cinema - Bastille Festival

le Cinema returns to The Rocks with harbour views, mulled wine and French-themed movies under the stars.

There are 100 comfortable deck chairs and warm blankets during each screening. 7 French-themed films, including classics, contemporary and animation.

Le Cinema, in The Rocks, has grown to become one of the most-loved experiences at Bastille Festival Sydney. Francophiles flock to this special event as what makes Le Cinema so unique is that it takes place in the middle of winter.

The prime location is right in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art overlooking spectacular Sydney Harbour.

Don't be put off by the cold winter nights, rug up in your warm winter woollies and spend an evening reclining in a cosy fabric deckchair, cocooned in a warm blanket (both provided by Le Cinema).

Le Cinema will also be serving hot mulled wine and freshly-made popcorn and because Le Cinema is part of Bastille Festival Sydney, there's a huge variety of tasty food stalls in the area from which to buy dinner and snacks to enjoy during the movie.

The 2018 Movie Selection
A few of the films screening at Le Cinema might be unknown to you, but they're among the biggest comedies to come out of France.

OSS 117: Lost in Rio is France's answer to James Bond, but with a tongue-in-cheek dash of Austin Powers too.

What's in a Name?, starring Patrick Bruel, is a theatrical comedy about how a young couple's choice of baby name threatens to tear their circle of friends apart.

Les Bronzés Font du Ski is a (nearly) 40-year old cult classic, with many French locals having seen it 20 times. Consider this film the French equivalent of much-loved Aussie classics, Muriel's Wedding and The Castle.

Each of the French language films being schas​ed have easy to read English subtitles displayed on the big screen, so you won't have to worry about not following along with the story.

Other films screening at La Cinema, include ​ La Vie en Rose, which saw Marion Cotillard win the 2008 Academy Award for Best Actress in her performance as France's most celebrated singer, Edith Piaf.

Sophia Coppola's​ Marie Antoinette is a stunning period piece that won the 2007 Academy Award for Best Costume Design. ​

For Family & kids [B]Ratatouille [/B]is an awesome, fun and heartfelt Disney Pixar animation loved by both kids and adults, about a French rat who dreams of becoming a chef.

Master French Director, Luc Besson's iconic film​ The Fifth Element absolutely deserves repeated viewings on the big screen due to its cinematic brilliance.

Tickets for La Cinema are on sale now and are priced between $18 - $28 per person.
