Night Owls Kids’ Film Festival opens at Village Green Darling Quarter for 17 nights of free cinematic splendour!
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 enjoy live entertainment each night from 6pm, 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.
To close out the remarkable summer season of world-class entertainment, Night Owls is proud to present Sweet Country. Having dominated the AACTA Awards winning Best Film, Best Direction and Best Actor for Hamilton Morris, this stunning Australian period Western from Warwick Thornton is a must see!
If you forget to pack snacks or simply want a night off from cooking, there are plenty of delectable dining options at Darling Quarter, so take your pick from sushi (Umi Sushi & Udon), steak (Stacks Taverna and Bar), Thai (Nok Nok Thai Eating House), Brazilian BBQ (Braza Churrascaria), fish & chips (Taste), pizza (Vesta), or burgers (McDonalds) and wrap it all up with gelato (Gelatissimo) or chocolate treats (Guylian) for dessert.
