King St Movies in the Park is back!

21 Oct 2021

We're combining Jazz and Movies in the Park for one spectacular evening of free fun!

An outdoor cinema, two movie screenings and a jazz concert - all in one evening! 

We're combining our popular Jazz in the Park and Movies in the Park events for one spectacular evening of free fun! 

On Saturday 13 November in Alexandria Park, our Jazz in the Park Movie Night will kick off at 4.30pm with the 18-piece big band from Jazz Music Institute playing the music of jazz pioneer Count Basie. Expect key compositions by the legendary figure, and an exploration of why (almost 90 years after its creation) the Count Basie Orchestra is so important to the history of music.

Following the tunes, our first movie for the evening, Mary Poppins Returns, will commence at 5:50 pm and will be followed (after an intermission from 8:00pm to 8:15pm) by Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.

As well as the evening's main entertainment, there'll be free balloons and activity packs for the kids, free popcorn for everyone registered, and a King St Eats voucher for every group registered, which can be used at King St's retailers for a picnic dinner while enjoying the music and movies! La Macelleria's gelato and coffee cart will also be on-site to meet any cravings.

Attendees are encouraged to BYO picnic blankets, cushions and chairs, but those with chairs will be asked to sit towards the back to ensure everyone has a view. Dogs on a lead are welcome, too, but alcohol and glass should be left at home.

Free registration for each movie session can be made here.

While the jazz and movie showings are free to attend, numbers are limited and registration is required for COVID-Safe purposes, and will be checked. Attendees must have a mask and wear it when unable to socially distance. 

If you're driving to King St for our Jazz in the Park Movie Night, don't forget about three hours of free parking, available every weekend! If you're staying for both movies, weekend parking is capped at $10—learn more here.
