Events by Aria Join Us As Our 2017 Season Restaurateur


The World's Most Beautiful Cinema

Situated on Mrs Macquaries Point against a backdrop spanning the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and city skyline, St.George OpenAir Cinema is a premium lifestyle experience, where the allure of film is combined with fine food and wine, and postcard views.

From early evening patrons gather with friends at the harbour’s edge to make the most of the stunning views and vibrant atmosphere.  Partnering with leading caterers and beverage providers, the event’s harbourside bar and restaurant deliver an extensive range of high quality meals, snacks, champagnes, wines, beers, ciders and spring waters.

Then at nightfall, an unrivaled cinematic experience unfolds when our giant screen is hydraulically raised from Sydney Harbour to stand three storeys high before a 2000 seat grandstand. 32 speaker surround sound, and a film program including premieres, previews and the best of current and recent releases completes an unforgettable night.

Thanks for a wonderful season! We look forward to seeing you in 2018.
