Here's the exceptional thing about being a movie lover: you're never short on stuff to watch. And, because where you see something can have a big imprint on your viewing experience, you're rarely lacking great places to get your cinema fix. Brisbane's latest: the city's riverside CBD brewery.

On most Tuesday nights from February 14–April 18, thanks to its returning Cinema Sessions, Felons Brewing Co is turning its Barrel Hall into a cinema and showing classic flicks — for free. From 7pm, you can lock your eyes on the big screen and enjoy a movie fave, all without paying a cent.

You can also get comfy on a bean bag and reserve your seat at the same time; however, that part will cost you $25. That amount is redeemable on the night, though, on food and drinks.

Either way, sipping beers with your movie isn't free unsurprisingly. There'll be cinema snacks on offer as well and, again, you'll need your wallet.

As for the films flickering across the screen, it's an impressive retro lineup. The season gets started with 10 Things I Hate About You (on Valentine's Day, naturally), then works through Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (February 21) and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (February 28, and screening outdoors). Next comes Back to the Future (March 7), The Lost World: Jurassic Park (March 14) and Inception (March 28), followed by The Parent Trap (April 4), Mrs Doubtfire (April 11) and Beetlejuice (April 18).
