This was fun. Went with friends to see Grimsby which was hilarious. It's BYO which is great, you can take food as well. We got some sliders which were ok but nothing special, the Parmesan fries were good and cheesy. It's great on a lovely Sydney evening.

I enjoyed our visit to the moonlight cinema. We went two days before the season was over but sill found it very pleasant. There is "gold class" seating more directly in front of the screen, we opted to go for general admission and still had very good seats. The only real difference in gold class is that waitstaff come to... More

The cinema itself is ok, although if it's windy the screen becomes distorted. The food service is the worst I have ever experienced in my life. You have to order at a separate stall and then wait for your food at a different one. Was told when I made my order it would take around 20 minutes, as it was... More

I 100% recommend going to see a movie at the moonlight cinema at Centennial park. My husband and I got there pretty early to make sure we got a good seat. While we waited for the movie to start we watched the sunset and enjoyed the cool acoustic music. We took a couple of blankets and a hamper with some... More

Movies in the outdoors - not a new concept but this one is much better thought out than others. You can hire a bean bag chair for $9 and I would probably be inclined to that next time - not as young as I used to be! But bring a blanket, some pillows and lay back and enjoy the movie... More

I do not come to the movies to be fed 40!!! minutes of advertisement! Are you people kidding me!? 30 minutes were the advertisements of crap like sound systems! Not even the trailers! I am furious, as it spoiled the whole impression of the event with comfortable beanies and awesome promotion by eHarmony, giving away free blankets. Last night they... More

My partner and I purchased the VIP/Gold Class with waited service tickets to the movie session however I feel this was not worth the price for it. The service staff were very friendly and attentive however the food was cold and average and the wine glasses were quite small. Will be buying the regular tickets next time and packing my... More

I had a great time watching Joy, outside under the stars in a comfy bean bag. No disturbing people and no issues with sound or video quality. It did rain when I saw this one but what to do... Bring your own picnic and wine/beer and have a great time! A bit pricy with the bean bags though. That's what's... More

End of the day the cinema is a screen in a park. Natural wonder, view, etc stunning so all they have to get right is the film and the food, drink, toilets. Last three absolute shocker. Some people waited two hours for food I gave up after 1hr 30min. They really need to sort out the offer and the systems.

I can not fault the beautiful location and setting in which to watch a movie under the stars. When the weather is good I could probably not recommend anything better. My issue comes with the service and availability of menu items for the experience I paid for. I paid the extra to enjoy "Gold Grass" only to discover from the... More
