What if we were to tell you that not only is there a moonlight cinema popping up in Brisbane this summer, but that they’ll be shaking up espresso martinis that you can have delivered right to your bean bag? Well, we just did, and you’re welcome. Yep, cue the popcorn, coffee cocktails and blockbusters because Moonlight Cinema is cranking up that projector and you’re invited.
Taking over The Amphitheatre at Roma Street Parklands from December right through to march, the outdoor cinema is serving up some absolute cracker blockbusters and short films, so fire up the group text and get ready for one helluva bean bag sesh.
Flicks-wise, we’re talking some Christmas feels with Last Christmas and Love Actually, a showing of the twisted talk of the town film Joker, and get your dose of action with Jumanji: The Next Level and Charlie’s Angels.
As for those espresso martinis, you’ll find them being shaken up at the Tia Maria bar alongside a Tia Popcorn Frappe and a Tia and Tonic. Live large and opt for a ‘Gold Grass’ ticket and you can order your coffee cocktail to get delivered right to your comfy bean bed.
Movie snacks being just as important as the drinks, you can expect the usual candy bar favourites as well as a full kitchen menu. Or you can pack your own picnic if you’re feeling ultra-domestic. You may not be able to BYO booze, but who needs it with espresso martinis to order.
Gates open at 5.30pm every day and the movies are kicking off at 7:15pm so we’re thinking you should rock up early to perch yourself in the midst of the oh-so-stunning Roma Street Parklands surroundings.
When: 14 December–29 March
Where: The Amphitheatre, Roma Street Parklands
