VIBE It’s something of an institution in Perth, and it’s pretty
easy to see why. Set in Kings Park’s stunning botanic gardens,
it’s scenic, central, and screens a great selection of new
releases, classics and family-friendly films.
EAT Their LA-style food trucks have you covered for deep-
fried everything – we recommend trying the southern fried
chicken burger and parmesan truffle fries. Those who prefer
their movies served sans heart attack can opt for Japanese.
TIP Pack a bottle of vino – there are no alcoholic beverages
served on premises but BYO is permitted – nay, encouraged.
The exception? Spend a little more on a Gold Grass ticket – it
will get you a glass of wine on entry, plus a reserved bean
bed and a spot right near the front. Fancy!
Kings Park, until Mar 29.
VIBE We can only describe the kitsch Rooftop Movies as
‘Miami Vice meets sideshow alley’ – think pink flamingos,
palm trees and garlands of colourful baskets hung like fairy
lights, silhouetted against the skyscrapers. Totes ‘grammable.
EAT Candyfloss-pink vans serve as makeshift bars, stocking
alcohol, popcorn and imported candy, and Dough Pizza
delivers right to the top.
TIP Bring a blanky and someone to cosy up to – it can get
windy up there. They also rent out blankets if you’ve come
unprepared (or stag). Buy tickets online – you can book
pizzas and parking in the same click, and popular movies sell
out ludicrously fast. Also, sort your parking at the box office
so you can drive out right after the film.
68 Roe Street, Northbridge, until Apr 11.
BEN & JERRY’S
VIBE It’s super fun, with live music acts before the screenings,
a fully licensed bar, and a cart doling out Ben & Jerry’s
ice-cream. Plus they have a 2K HD digital cinema system
with a 12m by 6m screen. For tech n00bs, that translates to
really high quality and, like, really, really big display.
EAT Um, is that even a question? Ice-cream, obviously –
and lots of it!
TIP Head to the opening night to see Triple J Unearthed
winners Husky perform – all proceeds from the night go to
WWF’s efforts to protect the Great Barrier Reef. Feel like
upping the ante? Invest in their new Volkswagen Polo
Class ticket, which gives you reserved premium seating
with a blanket and cushion, a bevvie from the bar, and
a Ben & Jerry’s shorty.

Best of therest
• If you’ve got a hot date, head to Camelot
Outdoor Cinema on Wednesdays for Jazz &
Oyster night, with oyster shucking from Andy
Grljusich, and performances by Perth’s finest
jazz musicians. Aphrodisiac city.
• We adore the food at Luna Outdoor, which
includes stuff like quesadillas and hotdogs.
Cheesaholics, pick up a Blue Cow Cheese Company
platter filled with Capel Cheddar and Double Brie.
• Trip down south? Make it super special with
Movies at Cape Mentelle. Rent a beanbed, pick
up some gourmet food, and swill a glass of Cape
Mentelle under the stars. Bliss.
• To channel the gang from Puberty Blues, head to
the Galaxy Drive-In Theatre. It’s totally retro (right
down to the Chiko Rolls!)
• Somerville and Joondaup Pines screen the
Lotterywest Films part of the Perth International
Arts Festival. Check out p49 for our top picks.
• If you’ve got kids, take them to see a Disney classic
at the Perth Zoo Twilight Outdoor Cinema, where
you can hear the calls of real animals during the
hushed bits. Hell, go even if you don’t.
Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinema.
