King Street Movies in the Park — Dinosaur Adventures
Revisit 'The Land Before Time' and 'Jurassic Park' at this free, dog-friendly evening of outdoor movies.
June 23, 2022
It's a great time to be a dinosaur fan — or, to be exact, a fan of prehistoric creatures rampaging across screens. David Attenborough's wonderful Prehistoric Planet has hit streaming queues, ready for a spectacular binge-watch. Jurassic World Dominion is in cinemas, even though it's forgettable. And King Street in Bowen Hills is doing a night of dino movies under the stars — beloved classics, too, and all for free.
At King Street Movies in the Park — Dinosaur Adventures on Saturday, June 25, you'll head to Alexandria Park, watch dinosaur movies, get super nostalgic and hear plenty of roars. On the bill: the adorable animation The Land Before Time (at 5.30pm), and then the OG Jurassic Park (at 7pm). Is there a better dino-themed retro movie combo? We think not.
Entry is free, but you are asked to register in advance for each session. This is both a dog-friendly (on a leash) and family-friendly event, so expect to have small and four-legged company.
There'll also live music, a La Macelleria gelato cart so you can pair your movies with dessert and free popcorn — with one serve per person while stocks last.
If you know you'll be hungry for more than movie snacks, you can also nab a $50 Luxury King St Eats Picnic Hamper for two, complete with a picnic basket and picnic blanket to use and then take home. Food-wise, it includes bites from your choice of El Camino Cantina, Xin Chao, Super Combo, Fat Dumpling, Welcome to Bowen Hills with Southern Smoke & Co, Beerhaus, Sushi & Nori and Six Acres Restaurant.
