Want to watch some of your favourite classics under the stars all day and all night? One Sydney cinema is offering just that and a little bit more this February. Mov’in Cinemas which has previously brought a pop-up drive-in cinema AND an outdoor floating cinema to Sydney is returning to town with a new concept. This time round it’s for Mopoke, Sydney’s new 24-hour festival which has been making waves for its many creative offerings. Now cinephiles can look forward to the first-ever 24-hour outdoor cinema experience in Sydney with a selection of award-winning films and documentaries.
24-hour outdoor cinema, Sydney
There are plenty of ways to watch a movie in Sydney. In cosy laneways, leafy green parklands and on the water, overlooking the harbour. But if you’re someone who enjoys a day-long movie binge, this is the place you want to head to.
The program begins on Saturday, February 4 with ABC’s documentary Secrets of the Australian Museum followed by The Mopoke Short Film Festival and a selection of award-winning short films. Then get comfortable on one of the cosy deck chairs on-site, surrounded by fairy lights, city views and the open sky and watch screenings of Eternity’s Gate, Midnight in Paris, The French Dispatch and Lost in Translation. At the venue you’ll also find popcorn, savoury snacks and drinks to keep you fueled throughout the evening. And did we mention, it’s completely free to attend, although bookings are required.
If you need to stretch your legs, you can walk through an immersive glow-in-the-dark flower market and design fair around the corner. Find more details on the Mopoke website.
