Your Picnic Essentials for Moonlight Cinema

27 October, 2023

If you’re looking to catch a flick with a picnic under the sunset, Moonlight Cinema has you covered. Here’s the best tips and tricks for you to take your picnic spread to the next level this summer.

Is there a better combination than snacks and a movie? Keep it classic with chips and dips – tortilla and guacamole or potato chips and hummus are always crowd pleasers. Or go for something a little fancier- grissini with French onion or roasted capsicum dip. If you’re more of a sweet tooth, pretzels and Nutella pair well together!

Get into the movie spirit with the addition of some popcorn; butter salt or even sweet and salty.

Plus, Moonlight Cinema is BYO so you can pack your favourite summer evening champagne or white wine with reusable flutes to cheers as the sun sets and make your movie under the stars a night to remember.

Checkered picnic blankets are like, so fetch right now. Pair this with a wooden grazing board and some pastel bowls. The colour palette will look great when you snap your gorgeous sunset pic!

We can’t wait to see what you create. Make sure you tag @moonlightcinema in all your perfect picnic shots!
