bamBOO Outdoor Cinema.
In the mood for a roadtrip? After 45 years, Busselton Drive-In
Outdoor Cinema is still going strong with double movie screenings
and a drive-in snack bar. Margaret River’s Cape Mentelle Outdoor
Cinema attracts over 15,000 people per season to the 100-strong
movie screenings. Madfish Winery in Margaret River and Denmark
is kicking off its second season this year. Sun Pictures in Broome is
the oldest outdoor cinema in the world, a must-see for cinephiles.

ê NORTHBRIDGE ê
NORTHBRIDGE PIAZZA SUPERSCREEN
Pack a picnic, grab some local takeaway, and bag
a beanbag to relax in front of Northbridge’s superscreen.
Gelati just across the road, family-friendly movies, and
plenty of fresh air are sure to keep the kids still for at
least an hour! Highlights Classics loved by young
and old during the Free Flicks for Kids season, steamy
Wednesday nights throughout the Summer Love season,
and plenty of holiday cheer at Festive Flicks.
Corner James and Lake streets, Northbridge.
Boasting incredible city views, a bar, Dough pizza on
delivery, and a retro popcorn machine, Rooftop Movies
is an urban oasis six storeys above the hubbub of
Northbridge. It’s almost as much fun hanging out before
the film as watching the movie itself. Best part? Even
if the movie’s dull, the skyline never is. Highlights The
very family-friendly Bambi, and family-unfriendly Rocky
Horror Picture Show.
Top floor, Roe Street Carpark, Northbridge.
ê CENTRAL ê
LUNA OUTDOOR CINEMA
Funky and fun, Luna Outdoor Cinema is set in an
intimate, tropical tree-lined courtyard, complete with
bean bags and a fully stocked bar. If picnics aren’t your
style, opt for a platter, which comes heaped with cheese,
dips and crispbreads. Highlights Arthouse films like
Tim Winton’s The Turning, and Muscle Shoals.
155 Oxford Street, Leederville.
BAMBOO OUTDOOR CINEMA
Since the Astor stopped showing films in 2008, Mount
Lawley has been in dire need of a cinema. Answering
the call is bamBOO Outdoor Cinema. The intimate
amphitheatre space is decked out with cushions, bean
bags, tables and chairs. Oh, and bamboo, of course.
Enjoy drinks from Luxe Bar (whose cocktails are divine)
and pizza from ACE next door. Highlights Two
premieres: Spike Jonze’s Her, and Dallas Buyers Club,
starring Matthew McConaughey.
446 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley.

ê OVER EAST ê
MOVIES BY BURSWOOD
Situated in the lush grass of Charles Paterson Park on the
banks of the Swan River, this volunteer-run cinema is great
for some family fun. Bean bags, a candy bar and a whole
heap of kids’ films – like The Lion King and Planes – seal
the deal. Highlights The sing-along sessions. This year,
it’s Grease. Start warming up the windpipes.
Off Resort Drive, Burswood Parklands, Burswood.
MOVIES BY BURSWOOD – CURTIN
Date night? Forget packing your own picnic, and splurge
on the premium option that includes a feast of pizza,
garlic bread, drinks, cheese and ice-cream along with
admission and bean-bag lounges for two ($89/couple).
Then let the cuddling begin! Highlights Date-worthy
films like The Princess Bride and James Gandolfini’s
second-to-last film, Enough Said.
Henderson Court, on Hayman Road, Bentley.
KOOKABURRA OUTDOOR CINEMA
Set in a bona fide state forest (take that, urban cinemas!)
and rocking a retro feel, Kookaburra Outdoor Cinema
is worth the 40km drive from town. Canvas-slung
deckchairs and tables speckle the lawn, but there’s more
than enough room to bring your own chairs or picnic
blanket. Highlights Drift, the epic surf movie starring
WA’s very own Myles Pollard and Sam Worthington.
Allen Road, Mundaring Weir.
Kookaburra Outdoor Cinema.
