Whether you’re taking Intro to Astronomy, fancy a relaxing night under the stars, or just an angry old cat lady in a young body, we’ve got the event for you.
Summer Series: Messages From the Past
When: 6-8pm, 17 March
Where: Sydney Observatory, Millers Point
More info: maas.museum
Sydney’s oldest observatory? Check. A famous astronomer? Check. Mystery? Don’t worry, It’s rife in the constellations. Grab a few mates after uni and enjoy a night under the stars and in historic surrounds as archaeological guides delve deep into the Moffat and Ross families who ran the signals at Observatory Hill. The plot thickens as Sydney Uni student Alfred Johnson reveals who these people actually were, as well as the incidents that occurred in the lesser-known parts of the Observatory. Now do we have your attention?
When: Now until 27 March
Where: Centennial Park
$15 for Cine Buzz members

What better way to astral project yourself from uni work than at our favourite outdoor cinema? With advance screenings, new releases and classic cult films while you sprawl out on the lawn at the starlit Centennial Park, we know there’s no rebuttal. Last month we had Zoolander 2, Blade Runner, The Revenant… (need we go on?) Now we hear you asking: what if I get hungry?
Not to worry, with an LA-style food truck and both a candy and licenced bar, Moonlight’s got you covered.
Where: Surry Hills
Free for entry
$20-25 for select activities (Booking Essential)

Looking for the purr-fect escape from uni and work (or just people in general)? Then head on down to our first ever space cat café. Enjoy a coffee from some of the city’s best baristas while hanging with the galaxy’s bravest space cats, then top it all off with a cat-shaped cookie. You’ll also be thanking us later for introducing you to cat yoga, where you’ll get a 45 minute session followed by 15 minutes of cuddle time with a feline friend (that’s your only incentive, right?). Hell, you can even sponsor a cat at the end of the day. Who knew you could have a café, space cat hangout and yoga gym all under one roof?
