The Moonlight Cinema in Sydney's Centennial Parklands is a fabulous place to enjoy a summer evening with good food, good friends and, ahem, a good fantasy.

Fifty Shades Darker (the highly anticipated sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey) was the movie of the night for this review. The movie continues the flesh-fest and somewhat flimsy story of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele as their relationship "evolves".

The storyline (such that it is) sees Anastasia Steele's half-hearted attempt at moving on from her relationship with Christian Grey. Butt... I mean, but... her lack of resolve makes it easy for Christian to make his way back into her bed... I mean, heart. There were, however, two moments during the film which filled me with excitement a fruit bat flying across the screen as the sky became dark and the moment when another movie-goer popped his champagne cork and I mean that literally.

Moonlight Cinema, on the other hand, is a fabulous event. You can BYO food and drink but I'd recommend that you indulge in the famous LA-style food truck and fully licensed bar which compliments the movie with a great menu of tantalising finger fare - and I mean that literally.

If you are really out to impress someone or deserve a bit of pampering, Moonlight's Gold Grass offers reserved bean beds in a premium viewing location and, with the speedy wait service, your food will be delivered to you no queuing required!

There's a film genre for everyone at this season's Moonlight Cinema. Gates are open an hour and a half before the film starts which means you can meet up with your friends, grab a prime grassy patch and just lie back and enjoy - and I mean that literally.
