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—and the best bit is your dog is invited!

But that’s not all there is to rave about, running from 1 February to 4 March at Western Springs Park, there will be all kinds of purveyors of food and booze on hand to keep your taste buds happy.

Join Toto Pizza at their pop-up alfresco long table dinner, which involves three courses paired with wine and heckin’ delicious pastas and wood fired pizzas. If you don’t make it to this, the Toto Pizza gang will be churning out delicious Italian eats for each and every session, so be sure to wear those stretchy pants.

The bar will be serving all of the summer classics, like Aperol Spritz and frosé, craft beers from Kaiser, Giesen Wines and a whole range of exciting cocktails. On top of this, the festival vibes will be flowing freely with live beats from DJs. 

You can bring your pooch to every single screening and there'll also be canine couches up for grabs—dream come true!

And don’t even get us started on the flicks. From Pitch Perfect 3 and The Greatest Showman to The Post, Wonder and the new Disney Pixar flick Coco, there’s something to suit all persuasions.

Plus, those lucky ducks out there with an American Express credit card are welcome to enjoy the VIP experience in the American Express Invites 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 $13, there’s never been a better time to plan your next movie date!
