Why lower yourself to a stuffy cinema when you can catch films still hot from the projector and all-time classics under the stars this summer? American Express Openair Cinemas is the latest outdoor film series to announce its seasonal lineup.
From January 17 to February 16, the series will screen at Western Springs. Movies on this big screen will include just-released hits like Peter Jackson's post-apocalyptic adventure film Mortal Engines, the Mary Poppins reboot starring Emily Blunt, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's A Star Is Born, DC Comics' soon to be released Aquaman, plus Dirty Dancing, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Breaker Upperers, and plenty of others.
Toto Pizza will be serving fresh and authentic Napoletana pizzas, while the bar will be pouring the good stuff from Giesen Wines and Canterbury craft brewery Kaiser Brothers. For those looking for extra special treatment, loungers, blankets and table service can be added on to ticket packages.
Those short of company are welcome to bring their pooch along to any screening. Spoilt dogs will enjoy a picnic platter of doggy delights and their very own canine couch. In addition, there will be special events taking place across the installation, including live music performances and DJs before the big screen lights up.
