If taking an Uber or Taxi, just ask your driver to drop you off at the information centre at The Briars Homestead, 450 Nepean Highway, Mount Martha. (It’s about 1.5km from the front gate so better to get them to drive up, if possible.)
So that you can enjoy the stunning view and fun festival atmosphere at Barefoot Cinema, we will be opening our doors at 6.30pm each night and we encourage all of you to get there early and soak up the serenity. The film will start as the sun dips into the ocean which during the summer period will be at approximately 8.50pm at Mount Martha, 8.30pm at St Kilda & 8.20pm at Werribee.
Barefoot Cinema is an all-weather outdoor event and even though it will be the middle of summer, we suggest you to come prepared and bring another layer and a blanket to chuck on at night when it starts to cool down because it does get a bit chilly when the sun sets. We are in Victoria after all and we know the weather can’t be trusted!
If there is a chance of rain, make sure you come prepared, including appropriate footwear and something to keep you warm and dry, as the event will still go ahead in most conditions. Umbrellas can’t be used while you’re watching the film (unless you’re right up the back), but feel free to bring them along and use them before the film starts if there are likely to be some showers around.
We also recommend that you bring a torch or ensure you have enough charge on your phone to help you find your out.
If the weather is seriously foul and we cancel your screening, all ticket holders will be contacted via email and SMS.
They sure are, at appropriately rated films. As this is a fully licensed event, children under the age of 18 years old will only be permitted if accompanied by a responsible adult. Kids under the age of 3 can attend for free and kids between the age of 3 and 12 can enter with a discounted Child ticket. The films’ ratings are stated on the screening page and we suggest you watch the trailer to help decide if the film is appropriate for your children.
