Outdoor cinemas are usually reserved for balmy summer nights once the season officially changes over to summer. But this year, American Express Openair Cinema is hitting Melbourne early for a special spring season at Yarra Park right next to the MCG.

From Wednesday, October 9 until Sunday, November 3, you'll be able to catch one of many box office hits on the pop-up cinema screen. If you haven't seen it yet, pencil in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for opening night; otherwise, you might want to book in a date to see the just-released Downton Abbey film. The program also gives you the chance to sneakily catch up on some of this year's most hyped films, including RocketmanThe Lion King2040 and the must-see Adam Goodes doco The Australian Dream.

Fitzroy's Ladro will once again be slinging its woodfired pizza, and a bar, serving Urban Alley brews, Giesen wines and Pimm's will keep your thirst quenched all night long.

Oh, and it's a dog-friendly space, so you don't need to leave part of your family at home. Plus if you're an Amex user you'll get 15 percent off select tickets, plus a lounger and bites for the movie.
