Cinemas and choc tops go together like movies and superheroes — these days, you can't have one without the other. But if you don't eat animal products, pairing a frosty (and readily available) dessert with your film-going isn't usually on the menu. Until now. Much to the delight of vegan cinephiles, Event Cinemas has launched a new vegan ice cream range.

In Sydney and Brisbane, the chain is now slinging two flavours of vegan choc tops from its snack provider Parlour Lane. Instead of dairy, these cones are filled with coconut-based ice cream that's been handmade by Aussie dairy-free producer Over The Moo. There will be two flavours to choose from — chocolate and salted caramel — that are both topped with vegan chocolate.

The choc tops are $6.50 for the moment, and are only available at selected sites — so NSW residents should make a movie date with the big screens at Bondi Junction, Glendale, Miranda, George Street, Macquarie and Tuggerah, while Queenslanders should head to Chermside, Pacific Fair, Robina and Kawana.

If you're fond of cruelty-free, dairy-free ice cream, you can add these to the growing list of vegan dessert options. Just this year, vegan Magnums, Cornettos and Weis Bars, plus four new dairy-free Ben & Jerry's tubs, hit supermarket and convenience store freezers. Lord of the Fries also added to its vegan lineup, expanding from meat-free burgers, hot dogs and yes, fries, to include a new range of vegan ice cream sandwiches.

Now we just need a gluten-free option and all the dietary requirements of cinema-goers will be covered.

Parlour Lane's vegan choc tops are now available for $6.50 at Event Cinemas Bondi Junction, Glendale, Miranda, George Street, Macquarie and Tuggerah in New South Wales, and at Chermside, Pacific Fair, Robina and Kawana in Queensland.
