Had always wanted to go to an outdoor cinema and we weren't disappointed. 4 stars as they have very few staff on so all lines are really slow and long. Picture quality and sound were fine - it is an outdoor cinema so of course it's not going to be amazing quality. My main pieces of advice: Book online (although... More

I purchased two Gold Grass tickets to the Melbourne Moonlight Cinema to watch the movie Lion, where one of the speakers wasn’t working correctly. It was very disappointing as the speaker would only work 20% of the time, with sound cutting in and out, and, given that I paid $70 for two “Gold Grass Tickets” I would expect a more... More

This is a great fun event for locals and tourists. Great food and drink options and comfortable bean bags available. Bring insect repellent for the mozzies.

It was our anniversary so we wanted to do something special. We bought the gold grass tickets which cost $74 for 2 of us. This got us a bean bag in a sectioned off area and waiters... until the movie started (what's the point?). Then we were told we could only purchase wine by the bottle not the cup. 2... More

I really enjoyed going to the outdoor cinema, although wasn't following the film fantastically. Big advice, get there early and hire yourself a long bean bag seat. About $20 each so not cheap once you had bought tickets and food/ drink etc, but so worth it! Lots of people who came in later were too late and were pretty stiff... More

This is a lovely experience if the weather is fine and you get a warm night! If not make sure you have plenty of warm clothes. You can take your own food and drinks which is good as the food can be pricey and the wait time can be long. It is worthwhile getting the upgrade to gold (or something... More

We went today Its an outdoor cinema so some things have to be expected . Helicopters flying overhead occasionally swams of fruit bats. That said its a good alternative night out. Picture quality very good / sound quality poor to average - really needed more speakers or louder for the quiet bits when other noises are happening. Get there early... More

We visited moonlight cinemas on valentines day 2016. I absolutely loved it ! I definitely recommend getting the gold grass package. It is a little more expensive but 100% worth it. Best seats, personally, are at the very front row towards the right side of the screen (as the screen faces more towards that way). Because the bean bags force... More

We go to the Moonlight Cinema every season and love it, we love the atmosphere of everyone having their picnics and drinks, overlooking a sensational view of Government House and CBD. We always take our own food as the lines can get busy, another tip is to arrive early, and yes you do line up but to get a great... More

We went to watch the Reverent on a Saturday night & were surprised that 2,000 other patrons were joining us. Felt a bit over crowded, with long queues to get in as only 2 people checking tickets. We waited 2hrs for the movie to start, & with no entertainment to keep us occupied felt like a long night. Only one... More
