With outdoor cinema season in full swing, Brisbane is set to welcome another place to watch a movie under the stars. Just look for the city's heritage-listed former gasometer — aka the eye-catching poles that have been a fixture of Newstead since way back in the 1870s.
Now part of the Gasworks Precinct, the iconic spot will play host to four Friday night film sessions throughout February. It all kicks off on February 1 with the side-splitting laughs of Bridesmaids, before serving up a little Kung Fu Panda for the family on February 8. When love is in the air mid-month, The Notebook will hit the screen on February 15. And to finish things up, take an intergalactic superhero trip with Guardians of the Galaxy on February 22.
The best part is that one little word everyone's wallet loves to hear. Yes, this feast of flicks is free. BYO blanket to sit on, and keep some cash handy for a snack from one of the onsite eateries.
Movies Under the Stars starts at 7.30pm each week.
