QV Melbourne Outdoor Cinema

Hurry up Melbournian as it is the last weekend for the Flick / Fest QV outdoor cinema season.
Come and enjoy free live music and comedy, filmmaker intros and themed $10 cocktails* from The Prosecco Van**. For the first time, every single screening is dog friendly.
Curated by Gus Berger (George Revival Cinema, Thornbury Picture House) the Flick / Fest season is a selection of everything from cult classics to recent hits, with weekly themes including Animation + Anime, Heroes + Villains, Musicals, Crazy Stupid Love, Oscars and 80s week. In association with Ozflix, the streaming platform dedicated to Australian film, two special screenings will feature introductions from cast and filmmakers.

Tickets are on sale now via

Today, Friday 22 March, there’s a special Ozflix Presents screening of raucous all-Aussie comedy The BBQ, starring Shane Jacobson and Magda Szubanski. With an introduction from the cast and director and an OzSnax short before the feature, it’s one not to be missed.

Melbourne’s only silent cinema is located right in the heart of the city on the Astroturf lawn in QV Square. The intimate open-air deckchair cinema remains one of the city’s most affordable outdoor cinemas. Tickets at $12* (plus $1 booking fee) include deckchair seating and high-quality headphones for every audience member.

Sessions begin at 8:30pm Thursday to Sunday nights from 14 February to 24 March 2018, with special event screenings commencing earlier. Visit for more details.

Film lovers can wander down Artemis or Red Cape Lane to the open-air courtyard for intimate screenings of QV Outdoor Cinema’s eclectic variety of films. Grab a burger from Grill’d, an Insta-worthy soft serve from Aqua S or a dark hot chocolate from Max Brenner and lounge back in an intimate 70-seat deckchair cinema nestled in the heart of the ‘city within the city’.

Worlds apart from other retail precincts in Melbourne, QV represents the quintessential Melbourne lifestyle. Intimate laneways in the urban precinct give visitors the freedom to wander and discover the eclectic mix of shops, cafes and restaurants at their own pace. Located on the corner of Lonsdale and Swanston Streets, QV has something for everyone with boutiques, enlightening entertainment and cosmopolitan bars and restaurants.
