Outdoor cinema returns to Canberra, bringing great films and a few surprises
[Sponsored] The Australian National Botanic Gardens in Acton will be the scene of Sunset Cinema's return to Canberra in November.
The season's first three screenings have been announced. Opening night film on Thursday November 16 is indie hit Patti Cake$, about a New Jersey teen (played by Aussie Danielle Macdonald) chasing an unlikely quest for glory as a rapper.
Friday November 17 will be kids' favourite Captain Underpants, and on Saturday November 18 it's a chance to see Battle of the Sexes, the true story of the 1973 tennis match between World Number One Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-champ Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). Tickets to these films are on sale now.
This year, Sunset Cinema is running with the theme 'Your Summer Local', encouraging patrons to make Sunset Cinema their local outdoor cinema destination. Sunset Cinema will also be supporting local charities by asking patrons to vote for their favourite cause, with the winner receiving a grant from Sunset Cinema at the end of the season.
No movie session is complete without the industry's contribution to world cuisine, popcorn, so for the first time, Sunset Cinema will work with a local chef to create a special “popcorn the local way” delight. This special treat will feature alongside a popular local on-site food vendor plus the new look Sunset Cinema Snack Bar and MadFish Wine Bar.
You can join the Sunset Cinema Movie Club to get early bird ticket discounts, news, promotions and other prizes.
