American Express Openair Cinemas is bringing more than movies to St Kilda Foreshore this summer, as an exciting festival program of food, fun and flicks is revealed, with American Express Card Members receiving a range of exclusive benefits.
Purveyors of fine food and delicious Italian cuisine, Ladro, will be making great pizza in the wood-fire oven, using the finest ingredients from artisan producers and the best Italy has to offer. Cinema-goers can also enjoy the rest of Ladro’s menu, which focuses on modern Italian dishes, with a local twist.
No event is complete without an option for those with a sweet tooth. Haagen Dazs will be providing ice cream scoops for film loving troops.
Fear not, the refreshments are taken care of too thanks to national partners 4Pines craft beer, PIMMS and Giesen Wines. Black Devil Cider will also be tickling Melbournites’ movie-goers taste buds.
With 23 events happening at Melbourne’s St Kilda Foreshore, the festival vibes will be in full swing every weekend with an array of alternative entertainment, live music and DJ performances before the latest and greatest feature films light up the big screen.
Punters have no need to feel lonesome on their night out, as film fanatics and doggy owners are invited to bring their K9 furry friends to any screening (being mindful of films with expected gunfire and explosions).
