Felons' Cinema Sessions — May–July 2023
Brisbane's riverside CBD brewery is improving your Tuesdays with free flicks in its Barrel Hall.
May 29, 2023
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 Tuesday nights until July 25, 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 includes plenty of nostalgic delights — Night at the Museum (May 30), Flubber (June 6, and outdoors) and The Princess Bride (June 13) included. Or, check out The Greatest Showman (June 20), Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (June 27), Legally Blonde (July 4) and The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy (July 11), plus We Bought a Zoo (July 18) and National Treasure (July 25).
