Summer may have ended at the beginning of the month, but that doesn’t mean it has to be over. It’s still warm, the days are long and every second person on my Instagram feed is at the beach. To continue summer for as long as possible before we have to wind our clocks back, the Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinema is returning to Glenelg.
Much like the Moonlight Cinema hosted in Botanic Park earlier in the summer, from this weekend until April 9, viewers will be treated to a cinema experience under the stars. This season’s moo-vie menu is packed full of award-winning features, old school classics, comedies, kids flicks and Aussie powerhouses. The venue also hosts a licensed bar and food options such as pizzas, cheese plates and other nibbles. There’s even Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to help you cool down on a balmy evening.
Sundae Sessions on, you guessed it, Sundays, will feature all of the above plus local live music acts and games on the green. Just to (literally) sweeten the deal, Ben & Jerry’s will shout you ice cream every Sunday throughout the season.
Bring along a picnic blanket, or opt to hire a lounger. Seating is unreserved, so grab your human or furry friends (dogs are welcome!) and head down early to grab a great spot. You can find the action on the Glenelg foreshore, in front of The Beachhouse/Magic Mountain’s slightly more aesthetically pleasing replacement.

His latest film The Image Book is a fragmented, often overwhelming collage of images and sounds from disparate contexts.
A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
The power of theatre to realistically, yet conceptually tackle taboo topics in society is proven by local company Velvet Chase Productions in their performance of Daniella Candida’s #nofilter, a unique, expressive and emotive exploration of mental illness, its causes, its effects, and the many faces of it.
Rose Callaghan’s comedic listicle is a welcome addition to the Rhino Room’s cracking line up.
A harmless, fumbling fool with an unpredictably cutting wit.
The energy, pace, hilarity, wit and talent of The Handlebards’ Twelfth Night makes the show a standout that anyone can enjoy.
SEPTEM is a short and sharp piece of theatre that realistically shows the true nature of humans when faced with ultimate life or death.
Hand In Hand is a cute, colourful, playful piece of quirky circus that the whole family can genuinely enjoy,
Heart-warming, electric, and funny to boot, Build A Rocket is the kind of show that cartwheels around your mind for days to come.
