Fresh air and films on offer in Castle Hill

March 14, 2015 by  

Castle Hill will be the venue for the inaugural Sydney Open Air Cinema next month.

The pop-up cinema represents the first time such an event has been held in greater Sydney, and will show 23 movies over 19 nights beginning on the April 1st, to coincide with the school holidays and the Easter weekend.

Genres include action, thrillers and animated movies, and screenings include both new titles and classics. Among the family favourites on show will be the recent Paddington movie, Frozen and Big Hero Six, while showings of recent releases such as The Theory of Everything and classics Top Gun and Dirty Dancing are scheduled.

Poster printing will no doubt be used to advertise each screening, and the full schedule can also be found online at the Sydney Open Air Cinema website.

There will be a range of food and drinks on sale at each evening, including a fully licensed bar, a candy stall selling sweets and popcorn, and hot food from a Glenhaven-based café called The Tuckshop.

Movie-goers can hire beanbags and blankets to make their screening more comfortable, while for a more upmarket experience, groups can hire a tent that includes catering for up to eight people and a private butler service.

The event will be held at Castle Hill Heritage Park from Wednesday, April 1st to Sunday, April 19th.
