American Express Openair Cinemas land at St Kilda Beach for a fresh season of outdoor film screenings and live music
Make the most of the long summer evenings at this cinema by the sea.
This year there are 21 screenings, some with DJs and live music. Dogs are not just tolerated at every screening, they're positively welcomed with free canine couches and doggy treats.
In a bid to champion food waste prevention, American Express Openair Cinemas is teaming up with OzHarvest to present Soul Sundays, a Sunday session of food sampling, trivia, music and games. A $3 donation from each ticket purchased will provide six meals to those in need.
The film selection features quirky comedies, new releases and genre-spanning classics. Highlights include Thor: Ragnarok, Murder on the Orient Express, Battle of the Sexes and Detroit to name just a few. Monday night retro screenings will throwback to classics such as American Pie, Dirty Dancing, Love Actually and Elf.
Italian cuisine purveyors Ladro will be hosting a series of alfresco long-table dinners – three-course meals paired with wine at three one-of-a-kind events. Ladro's Sean and Ingrid Langtry will also be curating the daily menu of dishes available throughout the cinema season, including wood-fired pizzas.
American Express Openair Cinemas will feature a dedicated cocktail bar serving summer classics as well as Frosé, Aperol Spritzes, 4Pines craft beer and Giesen Wine, ice cream and popcorn. Melbourne Martini cocktails in a jar will also be available.
Tickets start from $13 and American Express Card Members can expect sweet discounts. Doors open at 6pm and movies begin at sunset.
