Somerville Outdoor Cinema

This is the outdoor cinema at Crawley, Perth WA attached to the University of Western Australia. It’s a fantastic venue to see a film outside, sitting under the stars beneath the towering Norfolk Pines. There is a pop up bar and a pizza joint that also sells other hot food.

I went on Tuesday with some friends to see “Dating Amber” an Irish coming of age story. A beautiful funny film that we all enjoyed. It was absolutely packed though and as soon as the doors open everyone rushes in to place pillows, cushions and throws across the seats to save for later and then rush off to the bar. Rather like the unmentionable people from a certain European country who rush out at 5 am in the morning to place beach towels on the sunbeds around the hotel pool.
At the cinema though when it gets dark people can’t remember where they’ve left their belongings and end up sitting way at the back instead!

  1. What a great place to see a film, I would love it (and thanks for the film recommendation too). I can’t wait to get back to the cinema!! Perhaps if we had some like this they could reopen sooner, being in the open air πŸ™‚ And I loved your little dig at the beach towels brigade πŸ˜†

      • Well we have a few warm months and certainly eating and drinking out of doors is very popular. We also have outdoor theatre and concerts. So why not a cinema?! Happy Easter to you too 🌹🐣

  2. What a beautiful venue to watch a movie! under the trees & stars.
    I’m afraid this rushing to save a seat happens here in Singapore too …. hope that didn’t spoil your evening.
