The Telluride Mountainfilm World Tour will launch in Australia at the world's most beautiful cinema, the St.George OpenAir Cinema, on Friday 10th February, 2017.

Situated on Mrs Macquaries Point against a backdrop spanning the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and city skyline, St.George OpenAir Cinema is a premium lifestyle experience.

From early evening guests gather with friends at the harbour’s edge to make the most of the stunning views and vibrant atmosphere. Then at nightfall, an unrivaled cinematic experience unfolds when the giant screen is hydraulically raised from Sydney Harbour to stand three storeys high and with 32 speaker surround sound. In this spectacular environment, the Australian launch screening of the Telluride Mountainfilm World Tour will be an unforgettable night
