If you’d rather cosy up in front of a film, then Acre’s garden is the place to be. The picnic hampers for two include:
Glass of sparkling wine
Homemade bread and dips
The picnic kicks off at 6pm before Singin' in the Rain starts at 7.45pm. Tickets are $60pp including your film ticket.

Get in soon to make sure you don’t spend another Valentine’s Day facing the scorn of your significant other.
