How should I prepare?
Pack up a picnic rug or a bean bag and sprawl across the lawn for a perfect night at the movies. Bring a blanket for chilly nights and insect repellent to avoid those pesky bugs. Of course, you’re welcome to BYO your own food and drink, including alcohol.
However, if you forget to bring snacks, there will be a range of food and drink to purchase on site. There will also be a licenced bar.
A limited number of bean beds will also be available to hire for the evening. If you’d like to treat yourself, upgrade to a platinum experience for a premium double-bean bed, with a prime viewing experience and deluxe food and drink.
Or, try a Gold Grass experience and reserve your own bean bed. This experience includes waited service, so you don’t need to leave your seat.
