Soon You’ll Be Able To Take Your Dog On A Date To An Open-Air Cinema

There’s a new open-air dog friendly open-air cinema experience coming to New Zealand. It seems as though it may just be the perfect idea – who doesn’t love movies and dogs!?

The American Express Open-air cinemas experience will be unveiled in Victoria Square, Christchurch for the very first time this March 15 to April 1. This follows on from the popularity of the Auckland edition. Which returns for its third year at Western Springs Park this February 1 to March 4.

The nights will include live music and DJ performances. As well as the latest feature films, but the part we’re most excited about is the ‘doggy date’.

You’re allowed to bring along your pampered pooch to any of the screenings and they even get their own VID (Very Important Dog) treatment! Your dog will get to enjoy a platter of doggy delights including a donut made specially for dogs. They’ll also get their very own canine couch.

Us humans, also have a pretty tasty array of food available, with Farina bringing guests authentic Italian cuisine. With a focus on wood-fried pizza and signature pasta dishes.

To wash it all down there will also be a cocktail bar serving Summer classics such as – frose, Kaiser craft beer and Giesen wine. Plus the essential movie food of ice cream and popcorn.

The movie line-up will include a few of the latest Hollywood movies including – Wonder, Coco, The Greatest Showman, Pitch Perfect 3 and a classic Grease Sing-along.

If you’re an American Express car member you’ll get your own VIP experience including your own lounger, cushions, blankets and tasty treats. Plus all members will get 15 per cent off their tickets if purchased with their cards.

Tickets are $13 and can be purchased from the Open-Air Cinemas website.
