Ticket now on sale for North Sydney's 2017 outdoor cinema season
North Sydney Oval, with its historic grandstand and views of the lights of North Sydney, is a classy venue for outdoor cinema screenings, and the 2017 program is a good one.
It mixes up Oscar favourites for film lovers; blockbuster sci-fi and comedy; golden oldies for the nostalgics; and family films to give the kids a memorable summer outing.
You can't buy dinner here but there's popcorn, soft drinks and lollies. MadFish Wine Bar will be serving up premium West Australian MadFish wines and bubbles along with 4 Pines craft beers (Pale Ale, Kolsch & Hefenweizen), cider and water (sorry, no BYO).
Highlights include Warren Beatty's Rules Don't Apply; Denzel Washington, phenomenal in Fences; glorious musical La La Land; and the lovable 1985 fantasy adventure Back to the Future. Most movies have been announced but some (such as the Valentine's Day screening) are to be advised.
The premium Lawn Lounge tickets ($40) include an Ultimate Bean Lounger for the night, a bag of Cobs popcorn, a 4 Pines beer or glass of MadFish wine, and a Bulla ChocTop.
Bookings are now open. To see the entire program and Time Out's critics' picks and to make your reservations, click on the Dates and Times tab.
