Outdoor Movies in Victoria

Written by

Published Jan 30, 2017

Watch one of your favourite movies right under the stars! These events are quickly becoming a summer favourite, and Victoria has jumped on board, with over 15 outdoor movies lined up for summer 2015. Check out the schedule here.

Over the past few years there has been a huge surge in demand for free outdoor movies, but who can blame us, what better way to spend a summer evening than taking the big screen outdoors? Luckily for us Victorians some amazing community organizations are providing a great line up movies for summer 2015! 

Bring a blanket or lawn chair, dress warm (we may be having a hot summer but the nights still get cool!), and of COURSE don't forget the popcorn. 

All movies are FREE but they do accept donations supporting worthy causes, and helping to keep our fresh air cinemas alive. Most venues have concessions, but check the official websites (links provided) for further details.
