Summer Time is Melbourne is the time to enjoy a trip to an Outdoor Cinema. Over the years we have seen many different versions pop up all across Melbourne and suburbs. Whether you prefer your movies in the Royal Botanic Gardens, a Rooftop in the CBD, bayside in St Kilda or in the nearby Dandenong Ranges there is something for everyone.
Why not get yourself outside during Melbourne's beautiful warm Summer Evenings and enjoy some new release cinema or even some classic cheesy old Romantic Comedies or even an Old Fashioned Sing - Along. Check out some of our favourites around town and click on the link to see their upcoming program, you can bet there are usually excellent food and beverage options to go along with the movie as well ... after all ... this is Melbourne.
Roof Top Cinema Melbourne
Melbourne's original rooftop bar and cinema is located in the heart of the CBD and is a true urban experience perched high on top of the Curtin House on Swanston Street. Brightly coloured deck chairs are all the go here with a permanent bar and cafe to keep you satisfied during the movie. Rooftop Cinema is built to be an urban idyll, a complete contrast to the noise, bustle and crowds of the city. Up on the roof you have the sky above you, the grass beneath you, and a film and the Melbourne skyline in front of you.
The season begins from the beginning of December through until the end of March
Moonlight Cinema Melbourne
Again Moonlight Cinemas is one of the original outdoor cinemas and have been operating in Melbourne's beautiful Botanic Gardens for some years now. The screen is in front of a beautiful lawned area and again there is plenty of access to food and beverage options in additions to a wonderful mix of movie option for the whole family. The season begins at the end of November and runs until the end of March.
Moonlight Cinema Melbourne is easily accessible by Public Transport and just a sort walk from Flinders Street Station or Federation Square - access the cinema through gate D on Birdwood Drive.
Open Air Cinema St Kilda
If you're happy to venture just a short tram rode out of the CBD then the American Express Open Air Cinemas at St Kilda Beach could be the perfect option on a warm summers night. Why not enjoy the afternoon swimming at St Kilda Beach first? From November 29-December 21, St Kilda Foreshore will be taken over by a packed program of live entertainment, dining, music and dog dates. Yes, that’s right, dogs.
Food is taken care of by pizza from the Italian masters at Ladro. They're curating a menu for the evening, complemented by gourmet ice cream from Häagen-Dazs. Beer will come by way of 4 Pines, there’ll be fine drops from Giesen Wines, refreshing fruity brews from Black Devil Cider plus Pimms aperitifs.
Cameo Cinema Belgrave
Finally if you'd like to get way out of town and head for the beautiful Dandenong Ranges this could be the option for you.The Cameo Cinema is a classic 1930's cinema showing a mixture of mainstream and arthouse movies. During the summer months they also offer a small outdoor cinema in a beautiful natural space - a wonderful night out.
The Cameo was built by Alex Jaensch, who came to the Hills with his family in the early 1920s. An industrial chemist by trade, Jaensch later became a “picture show man”, touring the area showing silent films in halls and sometimes tents. In 1934 he commissioned the architects Scarborough, Robertson & Love to design a cinema for Belgrave. When the Cameo opened, it was a true “picture palace” of its time, embellished with ornate Art Deco features and distinctive silhouetted trees on the cinema’s interior walls. The renowned foot warmers in cinema 1 are still in place to this day.
