American Express Open Air Cinemas are on a mission to make winter better, coming back to Brisbane this July in a brand-new home: the iconic Botanic Gardens.
This year’s program is an exciting mix of box office hits and highly anticipated new releases including Rocketman (19/07, 27/07 & 2/08), Men in Black: International (21/07), X-men: Dark Phoenix (28/07), Yesterday (08/08 & 14/08) and Spiderman: Far from Home (11/08 & 15/08).
Little and big kids alike will rejoice at screenings of family films such as Aladdin (20/07, 26/07 & 04/08), The Secret Life of Pets 2 (10/08 & 16/08) and Toy Story 4 (03/08 & 09/08).
American Express Openair Cinemas have always been proud supporters of Australian cinema and will be screening three homegrown films in Brisbane season: The inspiring documentary 2040 (23/07) and two hilarious rom-coms: Top End Wedding (01/08) and Standing Up For Sunny (07/08).
For fans of cult classics, this year’s program features an 80th Anniversary screening of The Wizard of Oz on 13th August, a special Christmas in July screening of Love Actually on 24th July and a throwback screening of the most quotable film of all times: Clueless on 6th August (As if!).
With more than 27 events happening at Brisbane’s City Botanic Gardens, the festival atmosphere will be in full swing every weekend with an array of alternative entertainment; live music and DJ performances before the latest and greatest feature films light up the big screen.
Punters have no need to feel lonesome or long for company on their night out, as ‘Doggy Dates’ provides visitors the chance to adopt a pooch during the movie every Friday with all proceeds going to RSPCA Queensland. Film fanatics and doggy owners are invited to bring their furry friends anytime, as all screenings are pet-friendly.
American Express Card Members are invited to relax and enjoy the full VIP cinema experience by purchasing a ticket to the American Express Lounge. Card Members will get their own bean bag and get comfortable with a cushion and blanket as well as some tasty treats. American Express Card Members also enjoy 15% off selected tickets, complimentary blanket hire and access to the American Express Garden where they can enjoy sunset drinks and purchase decadent caramel popcorn,
Everyone can chillax to the max with the variety of seating options available and add a touch of comfort to a night under the stars with a lounger, a Kathmandu camping Chair or a blanket which can be hired online or onsite also.
