Catch an Outdoor Movie during Summer
During summer in Perth, there is a feast of movies to watch outdoors at various locations. So pack a picnic and rug and enjoy a movie outdoors with a group of friends. The weather can still be quite cool in the evenings, so make sure you bring along a jumper to watch your movie under the stars.
The movies usually run from early December to middle of April depending on the location. The cost of a movie ticket for an adult is around $12 to $14. Concessions are usually also available.
For Perth Festival films, tickets can be pre purchased from BOCS outlets if you want to avoid possible queues.
Perth Walkabout has provided a handy listing of locations for outdoor movies in Perth.
