Summer’s stars set to shine under the pines

Wander through Somerville’s famous pines, nestled by the Swan River, and re-discover this glorious setting for a sunset date night, picnic with friends or family get-together. It’s no surprise this beautiful venue was ranked among the world’s top 20 outdoor cinemas by Time Out, who noted Somerville’s founder’s ‘genius-level foresight’ to be ‘matched by an expertly curated festival program’.

Screening from 20 November to the end of March, this season’s carefully selected line-up of 18 films is better than ever. It’s packed with big names, intriguing off-piste picks and stunning films selected to delight regular and first-time Somerville patrons. These include Justine Triet’s thriller Anatomy of a Fall, the profound and unnerving The Zone of Interest from Jonathan Glazer, Oscar-winning director Hamaguchi Ryusuke’s gorgeous eco-fable Evil Does Not Exist and Wim Wenders’ outstanding return to feature filmmaking with Perfect Days.
