Outdoor Cinema at Bondi Beach
Summer in Sydney, Australia, is about being outdoors morning 'til night. To celebrate the city's fabulous summer weather, outdoor film screenings are held in public parks, on the harbor, and at the world famous Bondi Beach. The next best thing to watching a movie on the sand is watching a movie in a park right near the sand—there's still an ocean view from the grassy hill in the back. Every outdoor cinema has its own flavor; Bondi, or "Ben & Jerry's Openair Cinemas," attracts younger moviegoers, who unpack picnic baskets of wine, bread, and cheese for live music performances and the big Blockbuster film. (During my visit, the lineup was heavy on movies that ended up in the Oscars). Bring an umbrella since rain is common. It's so warm you won't even mind.
