Live the sweet life at Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinema
In Brisneyland, we are truly blessed with some awesome events that really capitalise on the endless summer vibe. Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinema has returned to the lush surrounds of the Rainforest Green at South Bank to combine a few of our favourite things – killer flicks, live music and ice-cream.
The Openair Cinema has forged quite the reputation as being a primo way to spend an evening. With films showing from dusk, cinemagoers can chill out before their movie with some tasty snackage and frosty drinks from the bar. To sweeten the deal, every Sunday screening is a ‘Sundae Session’ where it gets totally Oprah and everyone gets treated to free Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream. From classic flicks like The Rocky Horror Picture Show to hot new titles like War Dogs, these guys have made sure there’s a stellar mix of genres going on. Halloween weekend is going to be an absolute banger, with classic scares from The Blair Witch Project and Scream as well as a screening of this year’s nail-biter Don’t Breathe. Hot tip: bring a pal for hand-squeezing purposes.
As well as the main event, Openair Cinema believes in making the whole experience a party. Instead of awkwardly shuffling past a handsy couple to take your seat a la the traditional cinema experience, you’re greeted to the sounds of live tunes and DJs dropping dope mixes in a wide-open space where you can mix and mingle. As well as resident DJs GenErik and Mikey Wilson making regular appearances over the course of the program, special guests such as Neighbour, Calais and L.U.V will be taking the stage to up the cinema game.
Whether you’re down to laugh or cry, you can peruse the movie titles on offer and buy tickets at the Openair Cinema website.
