The cool breezes from the Bay while you enjoy a free movie

The annual event, Movies by the Bay, has just kicked off and its just where we all need to be right now. Imagine a cooling sea breeze fanning you from the water and being outside when our own lounge rooms are hot, humid and horrid.

So pack a rug, and a picnic, kick off your shoes and take your mind of things in the heat of the night.

Food wise you could stop at a local restaurant before the screening or organise yourself to buy some special take away. Nobody wants to cook on a hot night.

If you get there at approximately 8.45pm you can grab a good spot.

Movies begin at dusk, approximately 9pm. Onesies, PJs, beanbags and teddy bears welcome. Popcorn and refreshments are also available.
