Summer blockbusters and cult classics hit the Botanic Gardens this summer

There's nothing quite like a film under the stars in the evening cool of the Botanic Gardens. Settle back with friends and family for a movie and BYO picnic on a balmy summer night, or let one of the food trucks take care of the edibles for you.

This summer's programming has the usual mix of acclaimed Oscar hopefuls, kids' favourites and retro screenings to satisfy the nostalgic urges. The season kicks off on December 1st with the Idris Elba and Kate Winslet drama The Mountain Between Us before screenings of It, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Home Again, Murder on the Orient Express and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri. Other films to look out for will be blockbusters Justice League and Jumanji, comedies Pitch Perfect 3 and Bad Moms 2 and old-school classics like Dirty Dancing and Back to the Future.

As always, the Moonlight Cinema food truck and bar can supply you with comestibles, but you're welcome to BYO food and drinks too. 

Check out the Dates and Times tab to see what's playing for the rest of the season.
