American Express Openair Cinema Pyrmont 2019
Embrace the outdoors this summer, with movies, live music, good food and adorable dogs.
October 14, 2019
Can you think of a better way to spend a muggy, summer night than with an outdoor movie and quality food by the harbour? From October 31 to December 8, you can do just that when American Express brings back its outdoor cinema to Sydney's inner city coastline.
The Pyrmont spot is just one of the cinema's ten pop-ups that'll be held across Australia and New Zealand this year. Movies on this big screen will include just-released hits like It: Chapter 2 (fittingly held on Halloween), Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Joaquin Phoenix-starring Joker and Bill Murray zombie comedy The Dead Don't Die, as well as classics — including Elf and Love Actually.
Food truck Mr Papa will be supplying the movie snacks, with a menu of Peruvian street food, burgers, loaded fries and grazing plates, and drinks will be on offer from Giesen Wines, 4Pines and Pimm's. Every Wednesday, Giesen will be giving out free tasters of its wine and selling discounted bottles — a very compelling option for date night.
In addition to all this, there'll be live music performances and DJs every night from 6pm (when the doors open) before the film starts after sunset.
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 selected tickets, plus a blanket.
American Express Openair Cinemas will also pop-up in Sydney's inner west (Jan 4–Feb 2) and Bondi (Feb 6–Mar 15)
