With summer just around the corner, there is no better place to celebrate than at North Sydney's Summer local, The Sunset Cinema. Making its eagerly anticipated return on Thursday 18th January , outdoor movies may be one thing, but watching them in the impressive settings of the North Sydney Oval is an experience like no other. With the historic grandstand and fantastic views of the lights of North Sydney, the venue provides the perfect backdrop for The Sunset Cinema.
With screenings running until Saturday 24th March, there is plenty of opportunity to grab a crew, pack a picnic, and prepare to be entertained by an enthralling line up of blockbuster new releases, romcoms, wholesome family fun and much more.
Kicking things off in true red carpet style, the opening night will see Wonder take to the screen. Wonder tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.
The full program, available to view here, also includes the firm favourite, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 2017's animation hit, Ferdinand , the loveable bull and Hollywood's latest blockbuster starring Hugh Jackman, The Greatest Showman on Earth.
To further extend its support to the local community, this year The Sunset Cinema will be selecting three local charities and asking moviegoers to choose between them and help to raise money for a great cause with a grant being allocated to each charity at the end of the season. This season's chosen charities are:
1. Kids like Brett - When Brett Jones was born without an immune system, his family's life changed forever. Steve and Roslyn Jones spent more than a year in hospital with Brett as he underwent chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. They watched sick kids sharing medical equipment which spread germs and caused additional suffering. This motivated Steve and Roslyn Jones to set up Kids Like Brett - a charity dedicated to purchasing life-saving medical equipment for sick kids. Their aim is to help Australia's seriously ill kids grow up to be fit and well - just like Brett.
2. MS Research Australia - MS Research Australia is the largest national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to funding and coordinating multiple sclerosis research in Australia, as part of the worldwide effort to solve MS. Its goal is to accelerate research: into the cause, better treatments and prevention, with the aim of ultimately finding a cure for MS.
3. Heart Research Australia - Heart Research Australia supports world-class and emerging researchers to conduct groundbreaking research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.
