Cool Sh*t, Play, Sydney / 26 September 2023

Get ready to experience the magic of outdoor cinema as The Rocks’ beloved Laneway Cinema makes a triumphant return. Starting from October 4, 2023, and running through to March 27, 2024, this unique cinematic experience promises to be a highlight of your summer nights.

Every Wednesday evening, the iconic Playfair Street in The Rocks transforms into an enchanting outdoor movie theater. The main attraction: a massive screen surrounded by inviting bean bags and comfortable deck chairs. Here, you can settle in and watch your favourite movies under the starry Sydney sky.

But that’s not all – the Laneway Cinema offers more than just fantastic films. As you enjoy the cinematic classics, you can munch on delicious $2 popcorn. The best part? The proceeds from these snacks go to support charity, so you can indulge guilt-free. Additionally, you’ll have the option to savour delectable treats from nearby retailers.

The Laneway Cinema adds an extra layer of excitement with themed movie months:

October: Comedy, in Support of Beyond Blue for Mental Health Awareness Month
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

November: Music, in Support of Support Act

December: Christmas Classics
January: The Ultimate Holiday Road Trip
February: Summer of Love
March: Back to the 80’s

Stay tuned, as more information about partnering charities, schedules, and exciting collaborations from December onwards will be announced soon.

The Rocks boasts a stellar lineup of restaurants and bars, making it the perfect destination for a post-work night out during the warmer months. Whether you’re craving a delightful omakase experience at Izi Aki, Mediterranean elegance at Le Foote, or a drink at the award-winning distillery Hickson House, you’ll find a variety of dining options just a stone’s throw away from the Laneway Cinema.
