As part of the Barefoot Cinema 2020 season, you can swoon under the stars at this Valentine’s Day screening of Romeo + Juliet, Baz Lurhrmann’s 1996 adaptation of the Shakespeare classic.

Dive (back) into the modern-day city of Verona Beach, and the rivalry between two well-established families, the Capulets and the Montagues. Watch how it plays out when their respective children, Romeo and Juliet (played by the young Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes), fall in love.

The groundbreaking ‘90s film is packed with contemporary flare and, when it was released, presented the Shakespearean classic in a way we’d never experienced it before.

The first 300 people through the gate will receive a rose each from Elwood Flowers. Plus, there’ll be pizza by 400 Gradi and Italian vino by Babo Wines.

Gates open at 6pm; the film starts at 8.30pm.
