American Express Openair Cinemas is bringing food, fun and flicks to Christchurch this month, with American Express card members receiving a range of exclusive benefits.
With 29 events happening at Christchurch’s new Rauora Park, at the corner of Hereford and Manchester Street in the heart of the city, 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 canine furry friends to any screening.
This year’s programme brings a great selection of recent box office hits and highly anticipated new releases including Knives Out, Star Wars: The Rise of Luke Skywalker, The Gentlemen, Little Women and Birds of Prey, as well as Oscar winners including Jojo Rabbit, 1917, Bombshell and Joker.
There is also a special selection of family-friendly titles that feature in the programme, including Frozen II, Dolittle, Jumanji: The Next Level, Spies in Disguise and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Local favourite Bacon Brothers will be bringing its mouth-watering burgers to the event and Häagen-Dazs will be providing ice cream scoops for film loving troops with a sweet tooth.
Fear not, the refreshments are taken care of too thanks to national partners Kaiser Brothers Brewery and Giesen Wines, or try something a little different with Lillet cocktails.
