What happens if it rains or gets cold?

Nobody likes rain on their parade! But as an outdoor event, Moonlight Cinema is subject to the elements and will go ahead in most weather conditions, including light, intermittent or potential rain. A cancellation will only be considered if the conditions present a danger to patrons or staff.

Patrons accept the risk that weather they consider unsatisfactory may occur on a screening night and acknowledge that tickets are non-refundable. But if a session is cancelled, your tickets will be transferable for another night in the current season.

We encourage you to pack smart and bring something to keep warm and dry, just in case. The temperature can drop at night, especially in parkland. Ponchos, blankets and plastic picnic rugs are always a good option.

How and when will I find out about a cancellation?

Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. The Venue Manager will be monitoring ground conditions, and checking the weather radar (please bear in mind that conditions on site may differ to what you are experiencing at home). We try to cancel as early as possible, but the decision is rarely made before 4:30pm. Since the weather can turn unexpectedly, cancellations may need to occur at any time up to or during the screening.

In the rare event that a session is cancelled, ticket holders will receive an SMS and an EMAIL, we will update the movie listing on our WEBSITE and we will post a notification on FACEBOOK. In addition, SIGNAGE will be erected on site. Please assume the session is going ahead, unless you receive the official notification. If you decide not to attend without receiving notice, your tickets will be forfeited.

My session was cancelled

What a shame! But don’t worry, you can use your tickets again for another session in the current season.
