Outdoor Cinema in the Suburbs

Picture this! 

It’s another beautiful day in Brisbane so you decide to get out and enjoy our city’s incredible weather. 

You grab the family and maybe even the pets and you head to your favourite local park. 

You’ve brought your blankets, pillows and fold-up chairs. You pick a comfortable spot, and you settle in. 

You’ve now got the best view in the park of a giant cinema screen. 

You grab some snacks, relax and, all the sudden, you’re transported away on a cinematic adventure as you enjoy a family-friendly blockbuster movie right under the stars. 

Welcome to Outdoor Cinema in the Suburbs! 

We know there’s already plenty to see and do in Brisbane, but seriously, this is a must!

Set amongst lush trees and usually starting before sunset, outdoor cinema screenings are free and offer a constantly changing selection of movies.

So far, Outdoor Cinema in the Suburbs has wowed neighbourhoods with screenings of The Super Mario Bros Movie, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Wizard of Oz and Barbie!

It’s a unique way for you to connect with your community and keep the kids entertained.

Markets and food trucks are on hand with an array of delicious treats to ensure the perfect night out, and many events are dog-friendly, so your furry friends don’t have to miss out on movie night. 

Locations are always changing, and Council is making sure Outdoor Cinema in the Suburbs reaches new parks. So no need to travel to infinity and beyond, a special cinema experience in the moonlight may be coming to a park near you soon! 

All Outdoor Cinema in the Suburb movie screenings are subtitled.
