Summer is beach life and park hangs. It’s the blue open sky above and then lengthy sunsets as warm nights envelop the city. Melbourne is popping off with heaps of lush outdoor and open-air events and Bourne Local, which you may know from their Local Artisan Markets, is taking advantage of the sunshine and clear starry nights with their open-air cinema returning mid-January.
Now that we’re in the new year, Bourne Local is returning on January 21 with Dirty Dancing, Spider-Man: No Way Home on January 22 and to cap things off, the season will end on January 23 with a screening of Dune.
Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions, the film Ron’s Gone Wrong has had to be cancelled.
The picturesque Elwood Park will also be hosting live music, kids entertainment and plenty of gourmet eats from food trucks and award-winning wines and beers to accompany their giant 10-metre screen. There will also be face painting for kids on family movie nights. And yes, there will be popcorn too.
Elwood Park gates open at 5pm for the open-air cinema with film screenings beginning at sunset. There’s no assigned seating on the lawn, so come early with all your blankets, rugs, pillows, cushions and whatever else you need to get comfy for a night at the movies. And don’t forget your furry friend, either. They’re more than welcome if they’re well behaved like you.
Snap up your tickets to one of the three film screenings before they’re sold out and kick back with the sun setting at Elwood Park this January.
