Sunset Cinema provides a magical opportunity to immerse yourself in a film inside the beauty of the National Botanic Gardens. Sure, you can watch a movie indoors with zero chance of mozzies, prep work or waiting for dusk - but the Sunset Cinema creates a magic glow of projected light against the twilight sky, as well as allowing you to feel immersed in the elements of nature. The natural bush amphitheatre provides the perfect backdrop, with enough space for a social and interactive movie-going experience.
