Ben & Jerry's Openair Cinema @ Patrick White Lawns
MUSIC BY DAY, MOVIES BY NIGHT...
Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinemas are a quintessential outdoor event, with feature films lighting up our huge movie screen from dusk. Cinemagoers can chill out before their movie with some tasty food and frosty beverages from the licensed bar, while relaxing to sounds from the best of the Australian music scene and sets from the most exciting emerging local musicians. To top it off, every Sunday screening is a ‘Sundae Session’, a dedicated live music event with FREE Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for all prior to the movie!
The capital has embraced this fantastic event for the last three Summers and we can't wait for the fourth visit. Click here to visit openaircinemas.com.au/canberra for the full program and to book tickets.
