Go Back

St Kilda Openair CinemaJan 13, 2012


Ben & Jerry’s Open Air Cinema nights are a quintessential outdoor event with live music and feature films playing on a huge movie screen from dusk.

On arrival film and music lovers can relax with some tasty food and frosty beverages from the licensed festival bar, while listening to the sounds of Melbourne’s most-loved indie bands and singer-songwriters play as the sun sets over Port Phillip Bay.

At dusk a full-length feature film lights up the huge outdoor screen – the film program includes cult faves, classics and the best of new summer releases.

This year Ben & Jerry’s also bring you Sundae Sessions every Friday with FREE ice-cream to help you chill out to the tunes before the film screens. Sweet!

Guests may also bring their own picnic (no BYO alcohol or glass).

From: Tuesday 3rd of January 2012 To Thursday 9th of February 2012
