Dog-Friendly OpenAir Cinemas Pyrmont Ends Dec 8

American Express OpenAir Cinemas Returns to Pyrmont

October 31 - Dec 8, 2019 Metcalfe Park, Pyrmont: 27 Events

American Express Openair Cinemas is putting a ‘spring’ in Sydneysiders’ step as it returns to Metcalfe Park, right next to the Star Casino this November. Providing access to outdoor screenings beyond the traditional summer months, an exciting program of food and films has been revealed today.


The 2019 program will kick off with a special Halloween screening of the terrifying IT Chapter 2. In addition, an exciting mix of recent box office hits such as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (1.11) and Ad Astra (03.11), and highly anticipated new releases including Hustlers (15.11, 21.11, 1.12) Joker (8.11, 17.11) and Zombieland: Double Tap (24.11, 29.11) will light up the big screen at dusk.

Little and big kids alike will rejoice at screenings of family films The Lion King (2.11),

Dora and the Lost City of Gold (16.11) and Abominable (9.11).

American Express Openair Cinemas have always been proud supporters of Australian cinema and will be screening the uplifting Ride Like a Girl (28.11), the inspirational true story of Michelle Payne, the first woman to win the Melbourne Cup.

Fans of cult classics can vote for the movie they want to see on the big screen on November 27th, with the options including memorable movies such as Clueless, Mean Girls, 10 Things I Hate About You and more. 

Film fanatics and doggy owners are invited to bring their canine friends to any screening (being mindful of films with expected gunfire and explosions).

Food & Drinks

The popular Canberra-based food truck Mr Papa will make its way from the capital to delight moviegoers with delicious Peruvian eats including loaded fries, street burgers and epic grazing platters.

Fear not, the refreshments are taken care of, thanks to national partners Giesen Wines, 4Pines beers, PIMMS and Enjoy Water, Australian spring water in reusable aluminium cans.


The festival atmosphere will be in full swing every weekend with live music and DJ performances before the latest and greatest feature films light up the big screen. 

American Express Card Members are invited to relax and enjoy the full VIP cinema experience by purchasing a ticket to the American Express Lounge. Card Members will receive their own bean bag and can get comfortable with a cushion and blanket as well as some tasty treats (fresh popcorn, ice cream, wine). 

American Express Card Members will also enjoy 15% off selected tickets, complimentary blanket hire and access to the American Express Garden where they can enjoy sunset drinks and purchase decadent caramel popcorn.

Everyone can chillax to the max with the variety of seating options available and add a touch of comfort to a night under the stars with a lounger or a blanket which can be hired online or onsite. 

Premium tickets to Prime Video Lounge include reserved seating on a beanbag, service straight to your seat, a glass of wine and fresh popcorn and seats in the Kathmandu Korner will get you a camping chair, a drink, popcorn and a special discount voucher valid in all Kathmandu stores.
