Melbourne Outdoor Cinema Guide

Melbourne Outdoor Cinema Guide

What better way to spend an evening than watching classic movies under the stars in one of Melbourne's outdoor cinema's.

Now a Melbourne tradition, cinemas pop-up in early December, operating throughout summer until late April.

Most provide seating, albeit deckchairs, some allow beanbags, others picnic on the grass and enjoy the night air and big screen.

Another summer looms and so do the outdoor cinemas.
