South Bank Christmas Cinema 2023
Pack a picnic and enjoy Christmas movies from your childhood — and other favourite flicks — under the stars.
November 17, 2023
Last-minute shopping, over-indulging at celebratory shindigs and pretending not to be annoyed about receiving another pair of socks: they're all a part of every Christmas. For kids and adults alike, so is many a seasonal-themed movie. If it has Santa or Christmas in the title, it's optimal viewing at this time of year.
The folks at South Bank certainly think so, and have thrown together their yearly Christmas Cinema Series brimming with merriment as part of the precinct's seasonal festivities. But these free films aren't just for families. Any yuletide movie held under Brisbane's starry skies and by the water at River Quay Green at this summery time of the season is perfect for, well, everyone.
Pack a picnic and enjoy double features every night from Monday, December 18–Saturday, December 23. The familiar but still festive and fun lineup includes Elf, A Christmas Carol, Elliott: The Littlest Reindeer, Arthur Christmas and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation — as well as The Holiday, Happiest Season and 8-Bit Christmas.
Attending is free, and the family-friendly flicks screen at 6pm, with each evening's second session showing at 8pm.
