You can’t go past Barefoot Cinema for the ultimate summer experience on the Mornington Peninsula. It’s all about warm sunsets, picnic blankets and fun flicks at the ever so popular outdoor cinema. This newly expanded season will see the cinema set up across two spectacular locations on the Peninsula to offer cinema-goers an immersive experience, with audiences embracing fresh air, tasty treats and live music before the films begin once the stars come out. Treasure hunts and surprise lucky-door prizes add an extra bit of excitement to the experience.
The first venue on the program is Point Nepean National Park in Portsea, where movies will be screened until Tuesday, January 7. Continuing the coastal route, Barefoot Cinema will then set up at the rustically beautiful Briars in Mount Martha from Friday, January 10, until Sunday, January 26. The roving cinema will then return to the iconic Rippon Lea Estate from Wednesday, January 29, until Sunday, February 16, before heading to the Victorian State Rose Garden at Werribee Park from Thursday, February 19, until Wednesday, March 4.
There’s something on the bill for every taste. If musicals are your scene, why not head along to Yesterday, Bohemian Rhapsody, A Star is Born, or La La Land. Aladdin, The Lion King, Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2 round out the family favourites, and if you’re after an adrenalin rush you can jump into such action movies as The Joker, Hustlers, Ford V Ferrari and Knives Out. Enticing new comedies including Booksmart and Brittany Runs a Marathon will give you a giggle, and you can step back in time to enjoy Downton Abbey, The Princess Bride or Muriel’s Wedding.
