This year’s fantastic line-up includes…

Jumanji - Friday, 7 February
We’re kicking off the 2020 Park Cinema season with a family favourite – the 1995 classic fantasy film, Jumanji. The film follows two kids as they find a curious, jungle themed game called Jumanji in the attic. When they start playing, they unexpectedly release Alan Perish (played by Robin Williams) who has been trapped in the game’s inner world for over 26 years. A herd of exotic wild animals escape with him, and these strangers must band together to save Alan’s hometown from destruction. Click here to book your free tickets.

Crazy Rich Asians – Friday 14 February
Don’t have plans for Valentine’s Day? Why not celebrate with your family, friends or loved ones, under the stars, watching Crazy Rich Asians. The 2018 film follows native New Yorker, Rachel Chu, who travels to Singapore with her boyfriend Nick Young for his best friend’s wedding. It doesn’t take long for her to discover that her boyfriend comes from a wealthy family and is one of Asia’s most eligible bachelors. As a result, Rachel becomes an easy target for single women vying for Nick’s attention as well as his judgemental mother who wants to break them up. Click here to book your free tickets. 

Ailo’s Journey. Special MIFF screening – Friday 21 February
This year, we’re partnering with Melbourne International Film Festival for an unforgettable screen experience in Victoria Harbour. Narrated by Donald Sutherland, Ailo’s Journey follows a newborn reindeer as it travels through the Arctic wilderness for the first time. With plenty of hardships along the way, Ailo’s journey is sure to tug at the heart strings. Click here to book your ticket via Eventbrite.
