If you are looking for something different to do on a summer evening, consider going to one of Sydney’s outdoor cinemas.
The cinemas are an ideal form of entertainment in summer. What could be better than being outdoors on a hot summer evening, under the stars enjoying a movie.
Some of these cinemas are located at amazing locations like Mrs Macquaries Point over looking Sydney Harbour and Bondi Beach.
There are a variety of shows that are screened, which include new releases and the old classic movies.
Come along with family and friends, bring a picnic and blanket. Some venues you can purchase food, alcoholic beverages and hire out bean beds and deck chairs. The bean beds make for a very comfortable evening and are perfect for Sydney outdoor cinemas.

Openair cinemas are becoming quite popular and are located all over Australia, similar to Sydney outdoor cinemas. In Brisbane, there is the Moonlight Cinema at the Powerhouse in New Farm Park. Perth has the Camelot Outdoor Cinema in Mosman Park.
On the edge of Darwin Harbour is the Deckchair Cinema. Which is open 7 nights a week during the dry season. Melbourne has The Rooftop Cinema which is on the top of Curtin House in the heart of the city.
