program dates: The 2015 season will open on Wednesday 7 January and conclude on Saturday 21 February. There will be no screenings on 10, 16, 18 and 24 January due to concerts in the Domain. That makes for 42 screening nights – our longest season yet … and so, more opportunity to get tickets.

You can get all the info that day by downloading the St.George OpenAir app, or by coming here, to the event website.
