Moonlight Cinema Perth

Moonlight Cinema Perth Review

Moonlight Cinemas has returned to the lush lawns of Kings Park for the 2022 summer season and there is no better way to enjoy a movie under the stars on a balmy evening!

The gates open at 6pm. Early birds keen to grab a good spot, often queue a little before then, while the kids play on the grass or hunt for giant creatures at May Drive Parklands! There is a box office there to purchase tickets on the day, but sessions tend to sell out, so I think it’s best to check and buy online.

At Moonlight Cinemas you are welcome to BYO food and drink (including alcohol) or enjoy something from the onsite caterers such as fries, pizza and nachos. Alcohol is not available to purchase at G or PG-rated movies however you are still welcome to bring along your own. Moonlight Cinema is a cashless venue so don’t forget your bank card.

If you want to experience a taste of luxury for your Moonlight Cinema experience then why not opt for AAMI Gold Grass! Gold Grass offers your a prime viewing position of the screen, a deluxe bean bed and the option to order food and drink directly to your seat via one of the Gold Grass waiters. You need to place your order for food and beverage by 7.40pm as food is not served once the film commences.

If you purchase a standard entry ticket, a big rug or low lying chairs are essential. In the past, we took beach chairs, but it’s often easier (and comfier) to hire bean bags. A limited number of bean bags are available for hire for $10, so it’s best to get there early if that’s what you’d like to do. Extra blankets for snuggling or jumpers are a must, it can get chilly when the sun goes down. If you do get cold you can purchase a blanket for $15. Insect repellent can be handy too. While we’re waiting for the movie to start (at sundown, about 8pm) we chat, eat and have a game of Uno too. It’s such a pleasant way to wait for the sun to set.

At the back of the seating area, I noticed a few kids were playing ball games and running around too.

The 2021/22 season is on until 27th March 2022. There are always plenty of great family movies on, particularly during the school holidays and you’ll find all the latest new releases.

At the time of writing, under current COVID-19 restrictions, masks are not needed to be worn at Moonlight Cinema but you do need to present your vaccination certificate.
