Movies by the Bay

Movies by the Bay

Free outdoor cinema returns to Hobsons Bay at two waterfront locations during January every summer. Enjoy great films under the stars at this popular free family event series. Bring your own picnic or stop at a local restaurant before the screening and enjoy a delicious dinner. There is parking available and plenty of food providers nearby. 

Movies begin at dusk, approximately at 8.45pm. Unfortunately the weather has not been kind to us this year - please note the two rescheduled performances below.


Message for tonight's screening of Jungle Book:

Once again it’s not been an easy decision but tonight’s Movies by the Bay will have to be rescheduled. Jungle Book will now be shown next Friday at the same time (8.45pm) at the same place (Logan Reserve, Altona). Unfortunately the weather has won! There’s a forecast of strong southwesterly winds and that, coupled with the rain overnight, suggests it might not be the most audience-friendly experience. But there’s a brighter outlook for next week… the current weather prediction for 27 January is a perfect 28 degrees so let’s hope it stays that way. Sorry to everyone who has already made plans – the king of the swingers will have to wait another week.
