Two Baz Luhrmann movies can be seen under the stars in a St Albans park this summer as The Luna Cinema returns to the city.


Moulin Rouge! (12A) and Romeo + Juliet (12A) will both be screened at Highfield Park in July.

Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor star in 2001 musical Moulin Rouge!, which will be shown on Thursday, July 6.

The film is about a poet Christian (McGregor) who falls for a beautiful courtesan Satine (Kidman) whom a jealous duke covets.

Doors will open at 7.45pm, with the film starting around 9.15pm.

Three weeks later, on Wednesday, July 26, Romeo + Juliet is the evening movie.

Luhrmann’s 1996 adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragic love story stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes as the “star-crossed lovers”.
