Felons' Cinema Sessions — Spring 2023
Brisbane's riverside CBD brewery is improving your Tuesdays with free flicks in its Barrel Hall this spring, including 'Scott Pilgrim vs the World' and 'Barbie'.
September 19, 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 throughout spring, 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 latest season includes plenty of nostalgic delights — The Italian Job (September 19), Scott Pilgrim vs the World (September 26) and Shaun of the Dead (October 17) included. For Halloween, Evil Dead II and Evil Dead Rise will play in a zombie-filled double. Or, you can check out Death at a Funeral (October 3) and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (October 10).
Wearing pink and heading along on October 24 is highly recommended — even though it's a brand-new flick from this year, that's when Barbie is being given a spin.
