The end of spring means one thing: the beginning of outdoor cinema season! Here are our picks for the best alfresco flicks.

Rooftop Movies

Boasting incredible city views, a bar, pizza on delivery and a retro popcorn machine, Rooftop Movies is an urban oasis six storeys above the hubbub of Northbridge. We love a grungy/chic vibe created by old-school trailers, pink plastic flamingos and rickety wire spool tables. At Rooftop Movies, it’s almost as much fun hanging out before the movie as it is watching it. Best part? Even if the film’s dull, the skyline never is. Top floor, City of Perth Roe Street Carpark, Northbridge. 

Luna Outdoor Cinema

Funky and fun, Luna Outdoor Cinema is set in an intimate, tropical tree-lined courtyard, complete with bean bags and a fully stocked bar. If picnics aren’t your style, opt for a platter, which comes heaped with cheese, dips and crispbreads. Highlights Arthouse films like Tim Winton’s The Turning, and Muscle Shoals. 155 Oxford Street, Leederville.

Somerville Auditorium

This iconic cinema is set within a breathtaking cathedral of Norfolk pine trees on the historic grounds of UWA. Relax on one of the deckchairs, or claim a patch of grass to take in one of the many local and international flicks being screened as part of the Perth International Arts Festival. UWA, 35 Stirling Highway, Crawley.

Joondalup Pines

Kick back under the stars and enjoy a bottle of wine while taking in some the world’s most interesting film productions. Be seduced by the aromas of onsite caterer Slice of Italy as you become engrossed in the silver screen. ECU, 270 Joondalup Drive, Joondalup.

Camelot Outdoor Cinema

Set in a limestone-walled courtyard in the heart of Mosman Park lies Camelot Outdoor Cinema. Along with the on-site cafe/bar Espresso At Camelot are burgers, fish and chips, woodfired pizzas and even crepes on weekends. Make it down on a Wednesday night for live, pre-movie music. 16 Lochee Street, Mosman Park.
