Tradition and modernity have been harmoniously blended together at Gardens by Lotus, where modern Chinese-Australian dishes are served in a heritage-listed teahouse in the middle of Darling Harbour's Chinese Gardens of Friendship.
But the two clash in Crazy Rich Asians, when Constance Wu's headstrong Rachel Chu butts heads with her boyfriend's mother, the wealthy family matriarch played by Michelle Yeoh.
The stunning gardens are the backdrop for a screening of the Hollywood pop culture blockbuster, with the restaurant trading tables for bean bags for one night only.
Each $70 ticket includes mixed dumplings, salt and pepper chicken and vegetable fried rice, as well as a $5 voucher to use on drinks. The Lotus team is also popping moreish Szechuan popcorn to snack on during the film.
The film runs from 7pm to 9pm.
