“Our gift to the world”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Can you imagine seeing films - short or long - screened by or ON ther Harbour, with the Opera House as a backdrop?All you need is a blanket to sit on, if you don't feel like a reclining seat, a picnic hamper, (possibly) some mosquito repellent and an interest in unique experiences. This will provide it- in spades!

“A must in Sydney in summer”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Must be the world's most spectacular cinema, with the opera house and harbour bridge poking out on either side of the screen. Tip: it get sold out as soon as tix go on sale in Dec, but 100 tix are for sale each night and not too hard to get if you queue from around 5-530pm. Also onte it's only on for 6 weeks from mid Dec.

“Cinema en plein air”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

The perfect location, probably best in the world, for an outdoor cinema. Go early and take a picnic (or there's food available at the venue) and enjoys views of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. The night I was there a cruise liner sailed by, ablaze with lights. The film is almost secondary but it is definitely the best location to share a romantic film with someone special.

“Best cinema in the world!!!!”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

This is the absolute best outdoor cinema anywhere. You can go down with a picnic and eat on the grass before the movie and look out over the harbour or have dinner there. They serve various drinks as well. Just watching the screen lifting up slowly off the water is great entertainment. Sitting there watching the movie as boats go past and the lights of Sydney in the background is just magical!!!
