Rooftop Movies is Perth's most spectacular outdoor cinema and the new season has now started. There will be a fabulous line-up of blockbuster movies, new releases and traditional favourites.

This is the seventh year that these festivals have taken place. The venue is the pop-up movie site which is high up six floors above the hustle and bustle of busy Northbridge. Here there are fantastic city sunset views and, you can sit on comfortable beanbags, while you eat delicious food and have drinks - in other words, this could be the perfect date night location or place to catch up with your friends! The address is 68 Roe Street, Northbridge.
