For Perth cineastes, summer doesn’t mean beaches, barbecues and beer (Well, not just that…) but rather a season of movies under the stars as the cities outdoor cinemas wake from their wintry slumber. The jewel in the crown is, of course, Luna Outdoor, who once again are bringing us an excellent program of prestige pictures, indie darlings and old favourites.

A number of serious awards season contenders will hit the screen, including St. Vincent, starring the great Bill Murray; Michael Keaton showcase Birdman, Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game; The Wild, which comes from the director of The Dallas Buyers Club; and the hotly tipped Foxcatcher, which stars Steve Carell and Channing Tatum.

Insta-cult favourite What We Do In The Shadows, from the team behind Boy and Flight Of The Conchords, also gets an encore airing, and Inherent Vice, Paul Thomas anderson’s adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s novel, joins the party in February.

And, of course, The Room, the misshapen stepchild of indie cinema, gets trotted out once more.

Meanwhile, sister site Camelot Outdoor brings us the slick, cynical neo-noirs Nightcrawler and The Drop, blockbusters The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and Gone Girl, and more.
