The world's most beautiful cinema

From early evening, patrons gather with friends at the harbour’s edge to make the most of the stunning outlook and vibrant atmosphere.  With Matt Moran’s Chiswick restaurant on site and a harbourside bar with panoramic views, the event delivers an extensive range of high-quality meals, snacks, champagnes, wines, beers, ciders and spring waters to meet all tastes.

When night falls, an unrivalled cinematic experience unfolds a giant screen is hydraulically raised from Sydney Harbour to stand three storeys high before a 2,000 seat grandstand, complete with surround sound and an incredible backdrop.

say hello and stay connected…


For our 2018 season, we have partnered with Matt Moran’s Sydney dining institution, Chiswick, to bring a mouth-watering menu to our public restaurant.

A local favourite, Chiswick embodies the philosophy of paddock-to-plate cooking, and will be bringing the paddock to our beautiful harbourside setting this Summer. The Chiswick team will be onsite every night delivering a signature menu designed for St.George OpenAir Cinema.

Kirin Bar

Offering stunning views over Sydney Harbour, and a great range of beer, cider, wine, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages, come summertime, the Event’s Kirin Bar is the perfect place to catch up with friends.

We’re  also delighted to welcome back to the event Segafredo Coffee and Pat & Stick’s Homemade Ice Cream.
