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.
