Moonlight Cinema opened in style last night with a film which is already being whispered about in Oscar terms.

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI has star turns from Woody Harrelson,  Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell and a suppoprting cast including Peter Dinklage and Australian Abbie Cornish.

It is a gripping drama which is helmed by McDormand in a highly internalised performance.  It’s a complicated film in that no-one is really likeable and it’s impossible to decide who to root for.  They are all pretty unpleasant and the dark, very dark, humour that comes from their behaviour is extremely entertaining to watch.

MOONLIGHT CINEMA has a fantastic line-up of films this season and family films are firmly on the agenda.  To celebrate the first day of the summer school holidays Moonlight Cinema, presented by NAB, is hosting a Teddy Bear’s picnic and advanced screening of PADDINGTON 2  on Saturday 16 December, 2018.

Being a BYO event, Moonlight Cinema is a low-cost, easy night out for everyone. If you’re too busy to BYO don’t stress, Moonlight can provide you with everything you need – hot food, drinks, snacks and bean bed rental. For a luxury experience, Moonlight’s Gold Grass offers reserved bean beds in a premium viewing location and waiter service.

With superb weather last night, the crowd watched a lovely sunset over Centennial Park before the film and the vista of building lights and circling planes during the movie.  Stars and stars.
