American Express Openair Cinemas

American Express Openair Cinemas has revealed a brand-new Sydney location as it adds Pyrmont to its growing international tour program, which now stands at 12 events spanning Australia and New Zealand. The highly anticipated cinema under the stars is bringing more than movies to Pyrmont as the exciting festival program of food, fun and flicks is revealed, with American Express Card Members receiving a range of exclusive benefits.

Ideally located on the waterfront near The Star, a short walk across the Pyrmont Bridge from Barangaroo and the CBD, it’s an ideal after-work destination to unwind, lie back and enjoy all that the outdoor cinema experience has to offer.

Purveyors of fine food and authentic Italian cuisine, Salt Meats Cheese are returning again to cook up a storm. At the helm are Stefano De Blasi and Edoardo Perlo, who will be curating the daily menu of irresistible dishes available throughout the season. Their renowned antipasti and wood-fired pizzas are sure to delight cinema-goers.

Fear not, the refreshments are taken care of too thanks to Pyrmont’s brand-new sustainability-focused craft beer partners: Urban Alley Brewery. PIMMS and Giesen Wines. Black Devil Cider will also be tickling Pyrmont movie-goers taste buds.

With more than 20 events happening at Sydney’s Pyrmont, the festival vibes will be in full swing every weekend with an array of alternative entertainment, live music and DJ performances before the latest and greatest feature films light up the big screen.

Ideally located on the waterfront near Pyrmont Bay ferry terminal, it’s an ideal after-work destination to unwind, lie back and enjoy all that the outdoor cinema experience has to offer.

Punters have no need to feel lonesome on their night out, as film fanatics and doggy owners are invited to bring their K9 furry friends to any screening (being mindful of films with expected gunfire and explosions).

We’re opening our first ever season in Pyrmont with an advance screening of the highly anticipated new Robin Hood starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Jamie Dornan and Ben Mendelsohn. With Otto Bathurst at the helm, who previously directed episodes of Peaky Blinders and Black Mirror, expect a darkly aesthetic film with beautifully choreographed action scenes.
