LAST chance to enjoy watching movies outdoors at the Opel Moonlight Cinema in Melbourne, and we’ve got three pairs of tickets to give away!


There are few things you want to do less in summer than sit in a stuffy cinema with carpeted walls and sticky seats, which is where the Opel Moonlight Cinema comes in.

Every year, the Royal Botanic Garden is transformed from gorgeous garden to outdoor cinema as thousands of avid movie fans swap darkened theatres for nights under the stars.

There are no seats, but you can rent bean bags, bring your own or just pack up a blanket and find a place on the lawn.

The trick is to get there early so you can nab the best seats in front of the giant inflatable screen, and don’t forget to bring a picnic. You can buy food at the venue, but it’s just as much fun to pack up a basket of goodies to nibble on.

The films are a mix of the latest theatre releases and good old favourites. The setting sun and the garden’s bats provide a bit of pre-movie entertainment and the sound quality is impressive considering you’re outside.

The Opel Moonlight Cinema is on until March 31. Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for concession, but…

We’ve got three pairs of tickets to give away to our lucky readers!
