Galentine's Day Openair Cinema
Gather the gals for an outdoor screening of 'Bridesmaids' — for just $5.
On February 11, 2010, Parks and Recreation created history. While the all-round excellent sitcom was already fantastic and hilarious for many reasons, that's the date that the series aired its Galentine's Day episode. The specifics are simple: on the day before Valentine's Day each year, Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) throws a party to celebrate female friendship. And the impact has been huge, with Parks and Rec's made-up holiday now commemorated in real life in a big way.
At Brisbane Powerhouse on Thursday, February 13, Galentine's Day means heading to an openair cinema and watching some of Poehler's Saturday Night Live co-stars in hit big-screen comedy Bridesmaids. Obviously, you'll want to gather the gals, then mosey down to the New Farm site's Performance Lawn from 5.30pm — with the film kicking off at 6.30pm.
Even better — heading along will only cost you $5. All proceeds will donated to the Brisbane Powerhouse Foundation, too, which helps fund new performances at the venue.
If you fancy spending $20, you'll also nab a picnic box filled with continental meats, dips, pickles, cheese, olives, crostini and artisan breads.
And while it has been rather rainy in Brisbane of late, the film will screen regardless of the weather.
