From October 6 to November 19, the festival vibes will be in full swing at American Express Openair Cinemas at South Bank. Experience the woodland canopy of the Rainforest Green for an exciting festival program of food, fun and flicks.
Purveyors of fine food and authentic Italian cuisine, Salt Meats Cheese will be transporting diners to the streets of Rome as they host a series of alfresco long table dinners. A delicious three-course meal paired with wine will be served at three pop-up events at each location. Head honchos Stefano De Blasi and Edoardo Perlo, who share a mutual passion for honest cooking and quality ingredients, will also be curating the daily menu of irresistible dishes available throughout the cinema season.
The drinks are taken care of too with a dedicated cocktail bar serving a refreshing twist on summer classics, 4Pines craft beer and Giesen Wine. Great wine. Great people. Great times.
Over at ‘Crafty Corner’ guests will have the chance to ‘Pimp a Pineapple’ or enjoy masterclasses in knitting, macrame and more.
If you’re short of company, ‘Doggy Dates’ will give visitors the chance to pat a pooch during the movie, with all proceeds going to support the RSPCA.
