Although every night is pet friendly at Moonlight in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide, specifically programmed ‘Doggie Nights’ return this season so you can share a night at the flicks  under the stars with your treasured fur kids. 

The 2016 Doggie Nights will kick off with a special screening of The Secret Life of Pets this Friday 9th December, at 8h30pm. A star-studded affair, the screening will also include pet pampering stations, doggie treat samples and special giveaways throughout the night.

On December 18th, why not get your fur-family together for a Special Advance Screening of Red Dog: True Blue (officially being released on Boxing Day), showing in Sydney, Perth and Adelaide.
A follow-up to the 2011 Aussie hit, this is actually the prequel that follows the early events leading up to Red Dog’s discovery on the road to Dampier and his rise to Aussie legend.

Tickets are now on sale for the December-January season with a wonderfully diverse selection of movies to suit all tastes. These include nearly 20 advanced screenings, 19 new releases and a whole lot more including:
  • Passengers, Lion, La La Land, and Allied
  • The big summer blockbusters: Star Wars: Rogue One, Assassins Creed and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
  • Films for the family: Sing, Moana, Red Dog: True Blue, Pete’s Dragon and Trolls
  • Advanced screenings of A Monster Calls, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Office Christmas Party and Why Him?
  • Cult classics: Grease and Back to the Future

Ian Sutherland, the Group Director of Marketing said “We’re very proud of this program and excited to be screening so many big summer blockbusters before their general release dates. Moonlight is a quintessential Australian summer experience where you can bring together a bunch of mates, pack a picnic and recline on bean beds to enjoy the best films of the year.”

Please Note:

1. Moonlight Cinema is a BYO friendly event (except BYO alcohol is not permitted at Brisbane’s Moonlight Cinema), but if you forget your picnic hamper and wine have no fear... The Moonlight food truck and fully licensed bar will be serving up LA-style snacks to compliment the Moonlight Cinema experience.

2. Gates open an hour and a half before the film starts so head in early to snap up your grassy patch (also pays to head in early to get a car park!)
