Movies under the stars

For a long time the Brunswick Picture House have wanted to throw an event for the community with broad family appeal and now they feel the time is right as we all try to continue on after the curveballs thrown at us during these last few years. With support from the NSW Government, the Brunswick Picture House is thrilled to present Bruns River Flicks — a series of five Saturday night outdoor film screenings right on the river’s edge, in Banner Park.

The screenings will be free of charge (although tickets and registration will be required) and, as has become the norm for a Picture House film event, each film will be accompanied by a fun, entertaining live element that will blow your thongs off!

The lovingly curated films start on Saturday 5 November from sunset. Bring your warm blankets, dig out those festival-worn camping chairs, fill up your picnic baskets or grab your takeaway from the numerous Bruns eateries and and join in for five nights of outdoor cinematic fun under the stars, right in Bruns!

The film event will start each Saturday from around 7pm, with the film screening from sunset.

The film schedule is:
Saturday November 5  – a tribute to the golden age of classic B-horror films with The Incredible Shrinking Man, with super-cool live musical accompaniment from Picture House favourites Ben Walsh and Tom Thum. Rated G.

Saturday November 12 – a family favourite for over three decades with special guests, the Bruns pelicans: Storm Boy. Rated G.

Saturday November 19 – The Brunswick Heads Olivia Newton-John Appreciation Society invites you to a special screening, our very own love letter to ONJ: Xanadu. Rated PG.

Saturday November 26 – Celebrate the Big Daddy of the aqua horror film genre with Jaws in 7.5D: THE BRUNS EDITION! Rated M.

Saturday December 3 – to drag you out of the doldrums there is The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, in true BPH fashion. Rated M.
