Where to Watch Movies Outdoors in Brisbane

by Sally Foster (follow)
Watch movies under the twinkling stars

I have such fond memories of my childhood of going to the drive ins with my family. We would get dressed up in pyjamas, grab some snacks and all pile into the back of Dad's station wagon. There is just something magical about watching a movie not in a cinema or at home.

With this in mind, there are now lots of magical ways to experience outdoor movies and take full advantage of Brisbane's balmy nights by watching outdoor movies with the family. Here is our pick of some of the best:

1. Caboolture Splash and Movie

Moreton Bay Regional Council’s starlight cinema is going to Caboolture Swimming Pool for the Caboolture Splash and Movie. There will be pre movie entertainment, competitions and kids activities including a jumping castle, slip and slide and huge inflatable slide. There will also be a sausage sizzle.

When: Saturday 19th January from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
Where: Caboolture Swimming Pool, 198 King Street Caboolture.
How Much: Gold Coin Donation.

2. Free Movies in the Park at Manly Harbour Village
