No, this doesn’t mean you have to bring your own cinema, the film is provided! BYO cinema is all about creating your own ultimate movie-watching experience by allowing you to bring your own chair, table, snacks, footstools and, of course, friends. Situated on level 3 of Central Park, this pop-up style cinema is the perfect place for people to grab some take away, their favourite bottle of vino and some plastic cups before getting comfortable and watching a uniquely art-house documentary (that you’ve probably never heard of before, and probably won’t even be able to find on the interwebs). Tickets are $10 and screenings start at 7pm, but attendees are encouraged to come along earlier to mix and mingle with other grassroots film lovers.

Where: Level 3, Central Park, 28 Broadway, Chippendale
