Moonlight Cinema Returns To Centennial Park This Summer With New Releases And Nostalgic Holiday Classics

Ria Lawrence Ria Lawrence - Staff Writer


Cinemas are back but it’s sweet Summertime and the outdoors are calling. There’s something about watching our favourite classics under the stars that just doesn’t get old. This year, we’re especially eager to head out and thanks to the iconic Moonlight Cinema, we have enough incentive to dust off our shoes and take a break from the couch.

Moonlight Cinema 2021-22 Summer movie line-up

The 2021-22 movie line-up features some brand new movies and some timeless classics. The Suicide Squad launches the Sydney season on December 9 followed closely by Cruella on December 10.

Watch Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds face-off as duelling art thieves in their new movie Red Notice on December 12 and have the time of your life with Dirty Dancing on December 14.

Waited all of lockdown to watch Free Guy on the big screen? Mark your Calendar for December 15.

Since the Sydney season opens in December, its only apt to bring in the most wonderful time of the year with some seasonal fare. Luckily for us, some fail-safe Christmas classics are on the cards as well.

Take your date for a screening of The Holiday on December 16 or soak in all the cheesy rom-com mushiness with Love Actually on December 23. You can also celebrate all the Christmas nostalgia with Home Alone on December 21.


Kid-friendly titles like Encanto and The Boss Baby: Family Business are part of the line-up as well.

Once again, BYO will be available at all venues so summer night plans will be as easy as packing your picnic rugs and throwing them open on a lush patch of lawn. Obviously, don’t forget the food. But in case you do, or you’re not one to pack ahead, Moonlight Cinemas will have food offerings to satiate your cravings. P.S. don’t forget to keep a warm blanket handy for those chilly evenings.
