Sydney's Summer Outdoor Movies 2014

Sydney has a summer love affair with outdoor movies, and why not? What's not to love about languid summer evenings, classic and new release movies on the big screen, bean bag comfort, and laughs, food and drinks with friends.

Over the next few months you can settle in for your dose of cinematic summer splendour at any of the following outdoor cinemas that have made their homes at a host of popular Sydney venues.

Maltesers Moonlight Cinema Centennial Park

Sydney's beautiful Centennial Park provides the prefect backdrop for the newly badged Maltesers Moonlight Cinema until late March. You can still catch preview movies like Labor Day, Mandela: A Long Walk To Freedom and Lone Survivor.

St George OpenAir Cinema

St George OpenAir Cinema, with its perfect harbourside location, is probably Sydney's favourite, and Advance Tickets for all movies sold out in a matter of days. But did you know that a limited number of tickets are available for purchase each night at the Event box office from 6:30pm? Just perfect for those of you who are desperate to see Robert Redford's stunning one man show in All is Lost or Ben Stiller in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, but couldn't get your act together in time to book in advance. Check the website each day for details of how many tickets will be available for that evening's session.

Ben and Jerry's Openair Cinema Bondi

If pretty parks and harbour views aren't your thing then maybe you'd prefer your outdoor movies with sand, surf and the smell of the ocean. That's what you get with Ben and Jerry's Openair Cinema at Bondi. You'll see classics, documentaries, Sci-fi, thrillers, romantic comedies and family favourites. Their Sundae Sessions also include free entertainment and ice cream with your movie experience.

Beresford Outdoor Movies

For something a little different you can get your outdoor movies at the pub, which surely sounds like a match made in heaven for some. Beresford Outdoor Movies are bringing some cinematic fun to Monday nights until April. Each month has a different theme e.g. February is serving up the unlikely sounding Love and Cheese (think romance, not cheddar), and April offers Good Guys, Bad Guys. Sounds intriguing. Movies are free but you can purchase food and drinks.
