Know Before You Go: Sydney’s Westpac OpenAir Cinema

Dont Worry Darling on Screen at Sydney Harbour

Australia’s most beautiful cinema (aka the Westpac OpenAir Cinema) returns to Sydney this January 8th – February 21st with a slate of movies promising romance, thrills, action and opportunities to watch films before their theatrical release.

How you choose to spend a summer’s afternoon is up to you, but we reckon kicking back and watching a film with the incredible Sydney Harbour as your backdrop is pretty hard to beat. We’ve broken down everything you need to know below.

What Movies Are Showing At The Westpac OpenAir Cinema?

Open to thrillers that twist, ‘n twist some more? Get down to Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, consume every tantalising course of The Menu, enjoy all the on screen controversy of Don’t Worry Darling, or be enthralled by Everything, Everywhere, All at Once.

In the mood for some summer love stories? Feel your heart beat a little faster in Fire of Love, or go looking for love with Lily James in What’s Love Got to Do With It. Be sure to check out Emily, Titanic, Ticket to Paradise or even Magic Mike’s Last Dance.
