Here's a Sneak Peek of What's Playing this February!
Brace yourselves – we’re dropping our February film program on Wednesday 15th January! We’ve seen your comments and listened to what YOU want, and have created a program with a little something for everyone – your favourite summer blockbusters, award winners you missed in cinemas and classic throwback films.
Here’s a sneak peek of what we have coming up… so you can plan your platter accordingly. There’s really no better way to watch the galaxy far far away, than under the stars so we’re rolling Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Call the girls and get ready for some summer lovin’ at our Grease: Sing-Along session. For our family Moonlighters, we have an advance screening of the action-packed Sonic: The Hedgehog, and Robert Downey Jr’s new animal adventure The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.
Need to catch up on some Golden Globes winners? You can see Best Picture winner, 1917, relive Joaquin Phoenix’s chilling performance as the Joker and sing along to the classics in Rocketman. What a TREAT! You can be the judge if they’re deserving of the Globe; we’re all critics, right?
Mark your calendars, the full program is dropping Jan 15th.
See the Australian Family Movie of the Summer First!
Start your engines, and get ready for the high-octane, heartwarming Aussie film of the summer – GO!
Be the first off the mark and catch the WORLD PREMIERE of this family flick, under the stars, for the perfect summer night.
When Jack (William Lodder) and his single mother (Frances O’Connor) move to a small town in Western Australia, he soon gets involved in the competitive world of go-kart racing. Jack’s got natural talent but must learn to control his recklessness. To do that, he’ll need the help of aspiring engineer, Mandy (Anastasia Bampos), wise-cracking best mate Colin (Darius Amarfio-Jefferson) and mysterious mentor, Patrick (Richard Roxburgh). Together, the team will endeavour to overcome all odds and defeat ruthless racer Dean (Cooper Van Grootel) to win the National Go Kart Championship. GO! is a high-octane Australian family film with heart.
Award season is in full swing and what better way to re-live these magical movie moments than at Moonlight! The full list of film nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards have been released; however, we invite YOU to determine whether they’re truly worthy of the nomination or the mighty Oscar.
Catch the contenders, under the stars this Jan/Feb:
We all love to judge, especially with a full glass of Squealing Pig Pinot Noir in-hand. You’re the critic, you deserve it. Don’t worry, we won’t judge you – bring your blankets, wear your sweats & get comfortable.
Looking for something to do on Sunday? Head down to Moonlight for a Sunday with Somersby.
Assemble the squad and pack the picnic, but you can leave those godly melting ice-bricks at home because we have you covered! We have a sneaky little deal on Somersby products at our bar every Sunday so come down and grab a crisp ice-cold Apple, Pear or Watermelon Sparkling Cider – on a balmy summer night with the gals, or guys. We want you to enjoy only the best, of course! I mean, beer is divine but basic! Be a little fancy at Moonlight and treat yourself to some refreshing, fruity Somersby cider at one of our Somersby Sessions. There’s nothing better right? Or no better way to watch Joker, Knives Out, or Rocketman!
At every Somersby Session, we will be giving away true or false card games to win Gold Class cinema tickets – because everyone deserves to drink their cider whilst adding a little sparkle to their conversation. Simply collect your pack of cards on entry, take your photo, and upload it using #SomersbyFun to WIN– how do you like them apples?
If you’re joining us for a G, or PG-rated film, unfortunately, our cards won’t be distributed! Not to worry…Somersby will be still available at our bars!
On a side note, we want you to remember the movie! Please drink responsibly, Moonlight venues enforce RSA, and alcohol is not available to anyone under the age of 18.
Sip your Somersby with some nibbles, our full menu is below! Moonlight Menu

Tis' the Season at Moonlight
Get ready! Christmas is just under ONE month away. Not…
Get ready! Christmas is just under ONE month away. Not to worry, you still have plenty of time to stuff the turkeys and the Santa sacks…However; we suggest you get on top of this…So that you can join us for our Christmas Week film festival!
We’re playing the Chrissy classics, the family favourites, the highly debated ‘Christmas’ film, & the latest Christmas rom-com. There really is something for everyone… we even thought of those who aren’t into all things festive. Our Christmas film line-up is below and although not essential, we encourage you to dress accordingly:
Moonlight Returns with Localised Food Offerings ahead of 2019/20 Season Launch.
Operating for over 20 Australian summers, Moonlight has brought tourists, families, loved ones and friends together to share and celebrate food, drinks, passion, film and love for the outdoors. Although we say it every year, this season is truly lining up to be our best one yet.
Once again, we’ve secured your favourite inner-city parklands to provide a summer packed with newly released and fan-fave films. We invite YOU to come to lay out your picnic blanket, put your grazing platter skills to the test and grab your pooch to come to celebrate balmy summer days with us; and your friends, obviously. Thanks to our lovely friends at Black Swan, we have their delicious range of dips and Peckish crackers available, just in case you forgot to bring your contribution to the group because no one wants THAT awkward moment. We want the day and night to be stress-free, and for you to unwind and immerse in nature – with the best people around, now we’re not talking about our staff, we mean your loved ones, but our staff are pretty awesome, too. We’re also giving you the chance to catch the films you missed in cinemas, with offerings including the already iconic, Rocketman, Bohemian Rhapsody and The Lion King. While we’ve made sure to include some festive faves including Love Actually and the newly released Last Christmas; however, there are some surprises we have in-line with this… Stay tuned.
If you’re looking for something a little more boujee, we have two options that may tickle your fancy. The iconic AAMI Gold Grass returns, with Tia Maria cocktails, premium beers and signature Squealing Pig wines delivered straight to your custom-made bean bag. Not to stress Moonlighters, you all have access to our bar and hot food options. We wouldn’t want you to miss out on our localised menu offerings, including freshly sourced hot food options and cinema snack essentials. Additionally, for the first time, our Connoisseur Lounge guests will be treated to one of their mouth-watering decadent ice-creams with every ticket purchased, convenient, right?
