It is that time of the year, especially here in Brisbane, when you want to be outside in the fresh air at night. This is the perfect time to enjoy open air cinema. Ben & Jerry's Open Air Cinema brings contemporary and classic movies to South Bank.
Located in Rainforest Green in the South Bank Parklands, which is probably the quietest location in the parklands. The location is fully licensed and you can buy food there. It is also not far to walk to pick up some takeaway from the numerous shops in the area. However you can't bring alcohol in.
Lounge chairs are available for hire, or you can bring your own or a picnic blanket. If you want to sit on a picnic blanket I recommend coming early so that you can grab a location at the front so that no one in a chair will block you.
Showing an eclectic mix of current cinema releases and not so old classics, there is a good chance that you will find something to your taste.
Some of the interesting classics include The Breakfast Club and Top Gun. While new releases include big budget action films, comedies, kids movies and dramas.
The Breakfast Club: The 1980s classic about a diverse group of teenagers learning how to get on with each other and transform their lives while on weekend detention.
What we do in the Shadows: A mockumentary about vampires living in a modern share household.
The Equalizer: Do you remember this great 1980s TV series about an ex agent who comes out of retirement to help ordinary people take on the mean streets. Now it is made with Denzel Washington in the lead. One of the great adaptions from TV shows.
Top Gun: Tom Cruise flies fast in fast jets because he is the top gun. I definitely feel the need for speed. Made in the 1980s so no computer effects, just people flying jets fast.
