Meryl Streep drama to open Moonlight Cinema
Advance screenings of the Meryl Streep/Carey Mulligan starrer Suffragette, the Leo DiCaprio/Tom Hardy thriller The Revenant and Disney/Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur are among the highlights of Moonlight Cinema’s 2015/2016 season.
A drama about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain, Suffragette will open the outdoor cinema program on December 3 in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide followed by Perth on December 5 and Brisbane on December 16.
There will be two screenings of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and an advanced screening of Joy, which reunites Jennifer Lawrence with Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and the director of Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, David O. Russell.
The program includes Spectre and Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens plus the comedy Sisters from Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, Dirty Grandpa, a twisted spring break trip with Zac Efron and Robert De Niro, and Goosebumps, which stars Jack Black.
Jocelyn Moorhouse’s hit The Dressmaker will screen on Australia Day.
In Love the Coopers, John Goodman, Diane Keaton and Olivia Wilde play four generations of the Cooper Clan as they assemble for a Christmas celebration.
Cult titles include Dirty Dancing, Top Gun and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off plus a Grease sing-a-long.
