In a move that will give your preferred streaming channel a run for its money, Eagle Farm Racecourse has just opened its outdoor movie theatre. And, while to some, that might not be the be all and end all, they’ve just installed the largest outdoor screen in the southern hemisphere. Now we’re talking.
Big Screen on The Green is exactly that; a bloody huge movie screen poised in the middle of the newly renovated, heritage-listed Eagle Farm Racecourse.
Over the holidays catch all your favourite festive movies (Home Alone and Elf are obviously showing) and from January onward you’ll be able to check out blockbuster movies alongside the screening of the biggest sporting events including the Australian Open and The 2019 Superbowl.
Food trucks will be on site providing the snacks, but you can pre-order a picnic hamper if you want to make a proper night of it, and beanbag hire is also on offer if sitting on hard surfaces for long periods make you shudder.
BYO the picnic blankets and settle in for a summer of movie magic. Get all the screen times here.
