For five nights a week from 17th January to 9th March you can bask in the surroundings, watching a range of new release and classic movies, with the knowledge that you are at the spiritual home of outdoor cinema in Australia. That's right, the very first outdoor movies were shown at North Sydney Oval in 1909. And you thought outdoor movies were a twenty first century phenomenon.

The 2014 season provides you with almost two months' worth of movies including new releases, comedies, thrillers, family favourites, dramas and romance. Popular new blockbusters on show include Anchorman 2, the Secret Life of Walter Mitty, American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street. The kids will enjoy Frozen and Planes and you can get the tissues out for Philomena and The Book Thief. You can also relive favourites from another era such as The Big Lebowski, Dirty Dancing and Point Break. You can download the full program here.
