Flicks and food trucks – enjoy movies under the stars at The Lanes pop-up sunset cinemas

A sunset cinema is popping in Mermaid Waters this January and you need to be there. Over two balmy nights on January 19 and 20, the greenspace known as The Lanes will be transformed with a glorious moon-lit food and film event. Dust of the picnic rug and bean bags – here's what you need to know.


The Summer Sunset Cinema pop-up will bring the The Lanes space alive (um, if you don’t know what The Lanes is, read this), with a giant screen to showcase two back-to-back movies on both nights. The talented crew from The Design Collective are on board, bringing a tasty line-up of food trucks and live music. The event will kick into gear from 5:30 pm each night, leaving you plenty of time to relax and have a feast before the first movie starts at 7:00 pm.

Head there on Friday January 19th to watch Finding Dory followed by everybody’s favourite film, Love Actually at 8:40 pm. Head back on Saturday January 20 to catch Fantastic Mr Fox first up, with La La Land to follow. Expect a fun and relaxed vibe, and be sure to BYO picnic rugs or bean bags so you can kick back and enjoy the moon-lit flicks in comfort. Entry into the Summer Sunset Cinema is a gold coin donation, with proceeds going to OzHarvest. Oh, and it’s a dog-friendly event, so bring the puppers (they like movies too).
