The long summer nights are fast approaching, which can only mean one thing -Moonlight Cinema, which takes place in Melbourne's picturesque Royal Botanic Gardens, is back on.
This popular summer event which often sells out fast, is a great opportunity to relax and enjoy a film with friends and family, as you cool off from the summer heat. You can even BYO picnic and dine on the lush green or purchase dinner and drinks from Soul Kitchen Cafe who provide full licensed catering.
The best way to enjoy this outdoor event is to purchase a Gold Grass ticket which allows for premium 'seating' on a bean bed. Otherwise purchase a regular ticket and BYO blanket, rug or cushions. Low beach chairs with no legs are permitted. A limited number of bean beds can be hired on the day also. See the website for cost details.
For the film enthusiast, you can join the Moonlight Cinema Movie Club - see details on the website. Discounts for group bookings of 20 or more is also available.
Tickets will be onsale in the first week of November 2010. Check the official website or facebook for upcoming programming details.
There is sure to be a lot of films on offer during the summer months - Moonlight Cinema is well known for screening an array of feature films, from cult classics to classic Hollywood Cinema aswell as recent blockbuster releases and art house flicks.
Patrons should arrive at 7pm and if weather permits, the feature film usually screens at sundown. If the event is canceled due to technical failure or adverse weather conditions patrons are usually offered a voucher to another future session - not a refund. Check the terms of sale on the website.
