The weather’s been a bit dreary lately, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to the promise of sunshine, and the relaxing atmosphere of a good, outdoor cinema session. And it feels like there’s so many wonderful open-air cinemas to get excited for, including the annual Moonlight Cinema and the seasonal cinema in the Yarra Valley. And if you can’t get enough of it, you’ll be glad to know that both the Lido and Classic Cinemas are back with their rooftop sessions. Meanwhile, sister venue Cameo Cinema is bringing back their outdoor screenings on their rolling green lawn next month, starting with a screening of Trolls Band Together on December 1.
Rooftop and outdoor screenings at the Lido, Cameo and Classic Cinemas
These three outdoor cinemas are making a comeback with blockbusters and family favourites, so there’s something for everyone. Check out new films like The Killers and The Marvels at Lido on the Roof and Classic Rooftop. Then, embrace the festive season with flicks like Elf and The Holiday in December.
At all three venues, you’ll find a licensed bar, so you can enjoy a drink or two under the stars.
With Melbourne being… well, Melbourne, sessions may be changed or cancelled due to bad weather. If the session is cancelled, complimentary tickets will be issued. However, there are no refunds for outdoor cinema tickets.
Stay prepared and remember to rug up in case there is cold weather.
At Cameo Outdoor, dogs are also welcome to come along.
Here are the locations:
- Lido on the Roof – 675 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn VIC 3122
- Classic Rooftop – 9 Gordon St, Elsternwick VIC 3185
