Throughout December and January, Moonlight Cinema, presented by NAB, has entertained crowds on lush lawns in Adelaide. The action, drama and laughs are set to continue this February with a number of advanced screenings, cinematic blockbusters, fan favourites and family films lighting up Moonlight’s silver screen.

See the hottest and most anticipated films of the summer at Moonlight with advanced screenings of the critically acclaimed coming-of-age story, Lady Bird; the sizzling third-chapter of the Fifty Shades trilogy with Fifty Shades Freed; and the heart-wrenching story of an unlikely love-affair between an old Hollywood bombshell and her much younger lover in Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool.

With the award season upon us, Australia’s favourite and biggest outdoor cinema will present screenings of films that are sure to define 2018, including: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; Call Me By Your Name; The Post; Darkest Hour; I, Tonya and All the Money in the World. Catch them all and find out why the critics are raving about these films.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of cult hit Spice World, Moonlight Cinema is hosting a special sing-along screening of the iconic film. For one night only, grab your pals, dress up as your favourite Spice Girl, relive the 90s and head to Moonlight Cinema for a night of non-stop singing of Spice Girls classics while watching the momentous film.

There’s a bunch of other much loved fan-favourite films screening in February including Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Dirty Dancing and a sing-along screening of Grease which celebrates 40 years since it was first released in 1978!

The school holidays may be coming to a close but that doesn’t mean the fun needs to stop! Moonlight’s February program continues with a selection of the summer’s best family flix. From the fun and adventure of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead with the award-winning, animated Mexican musical, Coco.  Moonlight’s Family Pass for select G and PG-rated films is just $50, which makes it one of the most affordable outings a family of four can have.

Finally, choose the perfect Valentine’s Day date option - a romantic night under the stars at a special screening of the all-singing and all-dancing - The Greatest Showman.

Being a BYO* event, Moonlight Cinema is a low-cost, easy night out for everyone. If you’re too busy to BYO, don’t stress.
