It may be cold and rainy right now, but come to the end of the year, there will be warmer weather, sunshine and happiness.
And while this is the ultimate indoor cinema weather — comfy recliners, a LUX menu and your significant other cozied next to you; there’s a different type of date night that you can look forward to in the summer months. A night under the stars at the Moonlight Cinema.
Whether it’s a mate date, a date with your lover or even your four-legged pooch, nothing beats a picnic in the warm night air and your favourite (or new fave) movie.
Here’s your ultimate guide to date night at Moonlight Cinema.
Choose the right movie — for the both (or all) of you
If you’re like us, and you have to “scissor, paper, rock” to decide which movie you want to see, Moonlight Cinema is set to make your decision that much harder.
With classics such as Grease or brand-new blockbusters such as Tenet — there is seriously something for everyone.
So, how do you choose the right one for you?
If you’re feeling like a rom-com and your significant other, a thriller — opt for a happy medium, or better yet? Go twice.
Pack a picnic that will pack a punch
While there will be some yummy food options available onsite, nothing says alfresco like a picnic blanket, beer, rosé and delicious snackable items to spread out and enjoy.
From the perfect pairing of crackers and cheese to BBQ chicken and soft bread rolls, nothing quite says “summer” like some nibbles, bubbles and a clear night sky.
Oh, and if you arrive a little earlier, you can still enjoy the company of your companions before settling in for the feature presentation.
Spread out and social distance the right way
The global pandemic has certainly thrown a spanner in the works when it comes to planning for summer, however, if you keep to your own blanket and space, this is the perfect way to social distance.
If you’re on the lookout for a date night, this is the perfect way to cozy up in your own space.
Is summer here yet?
The Moonlight Cinema reopens in November 2020 in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide and January 2021 in Melbourne.
