For those on the northside of Sydney, the Starlight Cinema is summer's cinematic staple. It might not have the location bragging rights of the Moonlight or the Open Air Cinemas, but North Sydney Oval does have the grandstand as a handy wet weather option should summer storms conspire to scupper your evening.
This year's line up is also something to crow about. The programme says it's going for theme nights, such as: Action-Packed Wednesdays, Comedy & Adventure Thursdays, Fun & Romance Fridays, Big Movie Saturdays and Young & Free Sundays. But gimmicks aside, you just need to look at the line up to start plugging dates into your 2011 diary. Titles like The Social Network, Toy Story 3, Easy A, Made in Dagenham and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have already made the Concrete Playground cut this year. Similarly Black Swan, Boy, The Kids are All Right, Despicable Me, The King’s Speech and Somewhere are firm favourites, while Breakfast at Tiffany's never gets old, especially on Valentine's Day.
So if you happen to be behind on your film watching, or simply fancy revisiting some of your cinematic highlights from 2010, then North Sydney has just the spot, under the stars.
The Starlight Cinema season runs from 19 January - 5 March 2011
