How should I prepare?
Pack up a picnic rug or a bean bag and sprawl across the lawn for a perfect night at the movies. Avoid any pesky bugs by wearing insect repellent. Of course, you’re welcome to BYO food and drink, including alcohol.
However, if you forget to bring snacks, there will be a range of food and drink to purchase from food trucks on-site. There will also be a licenced bar.
Choose from a range of ticketing options to customise your viewing experience, from general admission with a picnic rug, to bean beds with waited service.
This is a dog-friendly experience, so you’re welcome to bring your pooch for company.
