American Express Openair Cinema 2019

Because there's nothing quite like watching a movie under the stars, Openair Cinema is back for 2019. There are two differences this year, however. Firstly, the annual outdoor film season is returning early. Secondly, it's moving to a new home.

From Friday, July 19 until Sunday, August 18, Brisbane City Botanic Gardens is your destination for catching flicks in a leafy setting — and while this isn't the first time that a pop-up cinema has graced the Gardens Point spot (Moonlight Cinema once called it home, years ago), it's a definite change of scenery for Openair. Just head to Soundshell Hill and look out for the big screen. Then, get ready to get cosy in front of it.

The full program is packed with highlights. If you like music and movies, then Rocketman will keep you tapping your toes — as will Yesterday, Danny Boyle's 'what if'-style flick about a world where The Beatles don't exist. Or, go web-slinging with Spider-Man: Far From Home, hit the magic carpet with the new live-action version of Aladdin and watch Keanu Reeves unleash his lethal skills in John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum. Long Shot and Top End Wedding bring some rom-com fun, and Clueless and The Wizard of Oz will take you back with a couple of classics. Plus, you can also indulge your inner kidult with The Secret Life of Pets 2 and Toy Story 4.

There's more where they came from — plus food and drink from Qld Pizza Bros and the onsite bar, comfy lounges and live entertainment. If you'd prefer to bring your own picnic and blanket, that's an option as well. And, you can bring your doggo to all screenings.
