Time: 6pm - 11pm
Swooping in for another 17 fun-filled nights of outdoor cinematic splendour this January, Night Owls Kids’ Film Festival is Sydney’s most anticipated annual family-friendly summer event, screening a bumper program of FREE box office hits.
Since 2012, Night Owls has delivered magical nights on Darling Quarter’s Village Green for adults and children alike – surrounded by nature, in the glow of the silver screen and under the spectacular city night sky, there truly is nothing else like it.
From Friday 4 to Sunday 20 January 2019, fun-loving film fanatics can zoom in on a wave of happiness and land the perfect perch from which to explore one of Australia’s best children’s playgrounds and grab an easy dinner from one of the many renowned eateries in the precinct.
Each night from 6pm there’ll be live entertainment, followed at 6:30pm by local and international short films curated in collaboration with Little Big Shots, Australia’s major children’s short film festival.
The main event kicks off at 6:45pm, with the coolest outdoor summer feature films for all the family. From the spectacular The Greatest Showman (just try to resist singing along!) and A Wrinkle In Time; to Pixar’s newest tearjerker, Coco; and crowd pleasers Paddington 2, The Lego Ninjago Movie, Peter Rabbit, or Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle - there’s something to entice both young and old.
Night Owls also has the summer blockbusters for the grown-ups covered, with After-Hours screenings on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30pm, including Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Thor: Ragnarok, Ready Player One, Ocean’s 8, Pitch Perfect 3, The Big Sick, and the hugely successful superhero hit and box office smash, Black Panther.
