It’s the news we’ve been patiently waiting for. Glenelg’s Openair Cinema is returning this March through to April, providing us with ample opportunities to sit out amongst the summer evening breeze watching the sun set over the horizon. Complete with some of the greatest new releases, cult classics and family favourites, Glenelg’s Openair Cinema is a summer favourite every year… and we’d say no less this year.
From March 15 to April 15, the American Express Openair Cinemas will be packed with live music, fabulous food and drink options, as well as dogs. That’s right, you can bring your dogs along to the cinema with you. Your pampered pooches can enjoy the “VID” treatment with a pawfect picnic platter of doggy donuts courtesy of Darby’s Dog Bakery & Deli and their very own canine couch. So very cute!
This year’s movie program is an eclectic mix of box office hits, highly anticipated new releases and cult classics including: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, I, Tonya, Jumanji, Coco, Pitch Perfect 3, The Post and Rocky Horror Picture Show.
The festival vibes will be in full swing each night with an array of alternative entertainment, live music and DJ performances before the latest and greatest feature films light up the big screen. On Friday evenings the Pepsi Max DJs will be getting the party pumping with summer’s newest tunes whilst Saturdays will see Visit Victoria showcase the sights, sounds and tastes of Melbourne’s vibrant cultural scene.
Purveyors of fine food and authentic Italian cuisine, Salt Meats Cheese will be transporting diners to the streets of Naples as they host a series of alfresco long table dinners. A delicious three-course meal paired with wine will be served at three one-of-a-kind events. Head honchos Stefano De Blasi and Edoardo Perlo, who share a mutual passion for honest cooking and quality ingredients, will also be curating the daily menu of irresistible dishes available throughout the cinema season. Their signature Truffle Pecorino Pasta; cheesy truffle pasta tossed through a wheel of truffle pecorino, finished with a grating of extra truffle pecorino, promises to be a firm favourite along with their arancini antipasti and wood-fired pizzas. Sounds delish!
To wash it down, the bar will serving cocktails from Melbourne Martini and refreshing twists on summer classics as well as Frosé, Aperol Spritz, 4Pines craft beer and Giesen Wine. Don’t worry, your essentials (ice cream and Red Rock Deli popcorn) will also be available.
