Free Films - Movies by the Boulevard at Sydney Olympic Park

Sydney Olympic Park's popular Movies by the Boulevard series will return for its fifteenth year of FREE film-screenings under the stars in January 2016.

Held at the iconic Cathy Freeman Park (opposite ANZ Stadium) on Olympic Boulevard at Sydney Olympic Park, the 2016 series of Movies by the Boulevard will run on Wednesday-Sunday evenings from 2-3, 6-10 and 13-17 January (inclusive). Movies will commence screening at 8.30pm nightly.

With a program of family-friendly FREE films spanning a variety of genres, Movies by the Boulevard 2016 will also include pre-movie FREE kids' activities from 6pm on selected nights. Presented by Starlight Children's Foundation, activities will include face-painting, animal balloon-bending, surprise visits by Starman and Starlight merchandise available for purchase.

Furthermore, on Thursday 7 January from 5.45pm, Sydney Thunder will present a FREE cricket clinic for kids of all ages to learn batting, bowling and catching skills at Cathy Freeman Park.

A selection of food and beverages will be available for purchase at Cathy Freeman Park from 6pm on all 12 event nights, and attendees will also find a great range of cafés, bars and restaurants across Sydney Olympic Park.

Unlike other outdoor cinema events, Movies by the Boulevard attendees will be welcome to take packed picnics as well as cushions, rugs or low chairs to the event, which is presented annually by Sydney Olympic Park Authority.

Movies by the Boulevard has entertained hundreds of thousands of Sydneysiders since its inaugural season and more than 35,000 people are expected to attend the 2016 series.
