A Dog-Friendly Outdoor Cinema Just Opened In Brisbane

Dog fans, movie buffs, food fanatics and lovers of the outdoors (aka everyone), listen up. American Express Openair Cinemas is back for a wonderful season of flicks in the glorious Brisbane spring air—and the best bit is your dog is invited! 

But that’s not all there is to rave about, running from 4 October to 11 November in South Bank Parklands, there will be all kinds of purveyors of food and booze on hand to keep your taste buds happy. Think Salt Meats Cheese, Pimms, 4 Pines, Giesen and Black Devil.

If you’re short of a four-legged friend to snuggle up with during the movie, the RSPCA will be bringing some of their cutest pooches to select screenings for you to pat, so be sure to get to one of those. They'll be there every Wednesday except October 31, because Halloween is too much for the puppers. If however, a Halloween screening of a terrifying movie takes your fancy, you can see The Nun in all its bone-chilling glory. Or, you can reminisce on your teenage life with a screening of Twilight to celebrate its 10th anniversary. 

The event kicks off with a screening of Aussie comedy, The Merger. Plus, they'll be showing the first ever outdoor screening using open captions for the deaf and hearing impaired on October 14. 

And don’t even get us started on the flicks. From Crazy Rich Asians, The Meg, The Incredibles 2, and classics like Dirty Dancing there’s something to suit everyone.

Plus, those lucky ducks out there with an American Express credit card are welcome to enjoy the VIP experience in the American Express Lounge. You’ll get your own lounger, a cushion, blanket and tasty bites, not to mention 15% off your ticket when you pay with your AMEX card.

With tickets going for as little as $12.50, there’s never been a better time to plan your next movie date!
