This laid-back outdoor cinema returns for a third year
Barefoot Cinema returns to the south side for a season of fun flicks.
A chilled out outdoor cinema will set up in the picturesque grounds of Portsea at Point Nepean National Park (Dec 26-Jan 8), then move to The Briars Homestead in Mount Martha (Jan 11-27) and end its season at Elsternwick's Rippon Lea Estate (Jan 31-Feb 16).
Films range from family-friendly comedies to fantasies, cult classics and documentaries. Whatever your niche, watch a film against the backdrop of Port Philip Bay and get stuck into food and drink from the on-site bar, various food trucks and the candy bar, where you can pick up all of your favourite movie-going snacks.
Highlights from this year's line-up include romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians, fun sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Hugh Jackman's The Greatest Showman, Whitney Houston documentary Whitney, the exhilarating Mission Impossible: Fallout and cult classic Pulp Fiction.
Barefoot Cinema has recently partnered with OneWave, a non-profit surf community that helps those suffering from mental health issues. As part of this partnership, Barefoot will be screening Tim Winton's Breath on January 16 at Mount Martha and documentary Andy Irons: Kissed by God on February 14 at Ripponlea Estate.
Early bird tickets are $16.50, otherwise, adult tickets are $22, and kids can get in for $15. There's also a VIP upgrade for an extra $20, which gets you into the comfy Jalna Lounge. Check out the website for the screening schedule.
