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 27 November, with the options including memorable movies such as Clueless, Mean Girls, 10 Things I Hate About You and more.
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.
