Ben and Jerry Open Air Cinema

Because movies are fun, ice cream is yum and being outdoors is great. So why can’t we have all them at once?

By Benjamen Judd

Ben and Jerry’s aren’t just purveyors of fine ice cream with nifty nicknames. It seems they’re also a handy pair to have around when it comes to getting out of the house and mingle with the community by partaking in one of our favourite pastimes – watching a movie. 

Starting on November 25 until December 21, the Ben and Jerry’s Open Air cinema will take place on the charming Cadigal Green at Sydney University. Kick and spend the evening with some likeminded movie lovers under splendour of a Sydney summer evening and enjoy a range of recent releases and cult classics. 

Enjoy the recent Emily Bunt thriller Girl on the Train, Woody Allen’s Café Society, Marvel blockbuster Doctor Strange, and the much-anticipated WWII story of Desmond Doss Hacksaw Ridge

For lovers of old school there is The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Dirty Dancing, and Clueless. Like, totally.

Once there, there are plenty of snacking and drinking options to choose from including pizza from Rocketboy Pizza and of course Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. From the Jar Bar, whet your whistles with 4 Pines beers, The Cider Lab cider and Giesen Wines. 

But of course that’s not all that’s on. To really capture the essence of summer, Ben and Jerry’s has launched their Sundae Sessions. 

The Sundae Sessions bring the festival vibe to the Inner West with live music, and FREE Ben & Jerry’s ice cream before the movie and a screening under the stars every Sunday throughout the season. 

As the sun sets, cinemagoers are serenaded by the best local bands at these dedicated live music events while digging into FREE Ben & Jerry’s ice cream before settling in to watch a “legendairy” movie under the stars.  

Tickets to each movie are obviously limited and some will sell out faster than others. Head to the website to check session times and ticketing.

The Ben and Jerry’s Open Air cinema will take place at Cadigal Green from November 25 until December 21.
