Highlights Kids big and small will adore movies like Oz
the Great and Powerful and The Croods.
Kings Square, Fremantle.

in the tranquil and leafy setting. Highlights Family
pleasers like Despicable Me 2 and Epic.

PERTH ZOO TWILIGHT OUTDOOR CINEMA
Get your family and friends together for this sought-
after evening of animation with an echo of real animals,

SOMERVILLE AUDITORIUM AT UWA
This iconic cinema is set within a breathtaking cathedral
of Norfolk pine trees on the historic grounds of UWA.

grass to take in a Perth International Arts Festival flick.
Highlights Coast – an homage to the Australian
coastline – and Child’s Pose, the winner of the Golden
Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival 2013.
UWA, 35 Stirling Highway, Crawley.
Set in a limestone-walled courtyard in the heart of
Mosman Park lies Camelot Cinema. Wednesdays are
the best nights to go because live music – from the
Perth Jazz Society, Fairbridge Festival Tasters and World
Music nights – is played before the film. Highlights
Critically acclaimed films like The Railway Man, August:
Osage County and Nebraska.
16 Lochee Street, Mosman Park.
MALTESERS MOONLIGHT CINEMA
Now in its 18th year, Moonlight Cinema is Kings Park’s
only outdoor cinema. If its central location doesn’t woo
you, then its lush setting in Synergy Parkland certainly
will. No promises that the mozzies won’t love the
location as much as you do... Highlights Hollywood
blockbusters like Anchorman 2, Thor: The Dark World
and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Synergy Parkland, Kings Park.
ê NORTH OF TOWN ê
MOVIES BY BURSWOOD – BASSENDEAN
Located in Bassendean’s cool BIC Reserve, this cinema’s
the one to pick on hot summer nights, because there’s
nothing like chilling out with friends, a drink and the
stars above. Highlights Classics like Back to the Future
and Dirty Dancing.
Cnr Guildford Road and Wilson Street, Bassendean.
JOONDALUP PINES AT ECU
Kick back amidst the pines trees, and enjoy a bottle of
wine while taking in some the world’s most interesting
film productions. Highlights The Armstrong Lie might
answer whether or not cyclist Lance dabbled in banned
substances, while the 2013 Seventh Annual Asia Pacific
Screen Awards celebrates the region’s diversity and
cultures through film.
ECU, 270 Joondalup Drive, Joondalup.
GALAXY DRIVE-IN THEATRE
For lovers of all things old school, a visit to Galaxy
Drive-In Theatre is a must. Sure, it’s a little rough around
the edges – that’s part of its charm. For a steal, go on
Bargain Night Tuesdays (only $20 for the car). The food
– hot chips, chiko rolls and toasties – is just as retro. We
love. Highlights Family-friendly new releases including
comedy, action and animation.
Goollelal Drive, Kingsley.
Grab a picnic blanket, the
mozzie spray and a cuddle
buddy and partake in one
of Perth’s favourite summer
pastimes: outdoor cinema.
