Moonlight Cinema

    Recommended Posts

    Just to let you know the moon light cinema has started again.

     

    For those who've never been before, it's a night out in the botanical gardens watching a movie. Take your own bean bag or hire their's... Take a bit of a picnic and go with friends, it's a great alternative night out. The films aren't always the very latest, but there is always a good choice.

    It's a great experience.

    We took loads of nibbles and wine.

     

    Watched some girly/poofy flick..

     

    Funny when you are leaving and the Possums come out of nowhere looking for scraps!:biglaugh:

    .....but on a lighter note! It's such fun! We've been for the last few years, in sun and even rain - it came on when we were there!- but we take blankets and a groundsheet if it looks like rain, so it's no drama if the temp drops or it does start raining.

     

    It is pretty costly but used to be a bit cheaper if you bought a few tickets in advance. The latest thing is Gold Grass, which does mean you get a good spot, a beanbag ( and theirs are big) plus a glass of wine BUT I believe it costs as much as Gold Class...which I think is a bit naughty.

     

    All that said, it's nice to watch the sun go down, feel the change in the air and snuggle down in a blanket whilst watching a film. Even if it's " some girly / pouffy flick"! :biglaugh:

    This sounds like great fun, can you take the kiddies or is it a babysitter night? I used to love the outdoor cinema in Leeds when it was on and that was a darn sight colder than Adelaide has ever been at night!!! It is so nice to be able to make a special effort and so something different rather than just sticking with the norm and heading to the cinema, which incidentally I always feel cold in the cinema and always have to take my coat anyway lol!

    If it is rated less than MA then you can take the kidlets, quite often they have family films on aswell. The other option this time of year is the drive in where people pile chairs out of their cars, lie on the roof etc and watch the truly big screen. You can take your own food and drink too. Back in the day kids used to wander around and there was a playground under the screen, but people are more safety orientated now since kids started disappearing.
