Theme Park Cinema – Aussie World Open Air Movie Nights

Theme Park Cinema – Aussie World Open Air Movie Nights

By Open Air Movie Nights & Coastline Mini Garage

 

We like to do things a little differently around here & more than anything else, we LOVE a good excuse to throw a party!

So, we recently pieced together a “family-friendly”, after-hours event, within the iconic Sunshine Coast Theme Park “Aussie World”.

The fun formula was pretty simple really:

Step 1. Choose a quirky location (The Shed @ Downunder Drive & Aussie World Theme Park)

Step 2. Throw in some uber activities, world-class live music, prizes to giveaway, set up the photo booth, roll out the red carpet, include fancy VIP seating, open the bar, pop the popcorn, floss (?) the fairy floss & fire up the projector…. Voilà!!

The gates closed to the public at 5pm and we re-opened at 5:30pm with “all you can access” Speedway Dodgems and live music by the world-class singer/songwriter – Mr. Paul B. Clement!

With an hour and a half of unlimited rides on the dodgem cars, soulful live tunes within the shed & the bar and bistro open with tasty food / refreshing drinks. This event definitely catered for all ages!

We wrapped things up by giving away over $900 in prizes before screening the feature film – Jumanji (the 1995 classic starring Robin Williams).

This film has been on our “to-do-list” for quite a while & the timing couldn’t have been better. With the recent release of Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle & the Easter School Holidays upon us. It was an easy decision to showcase the original film at one of Australia’s favorite Theme Parks – AUSSIE WORLD!

Grab your best mates, loved ones, family and fellow #MovieBuffs… Our first blockbuster event for 2018 also happens to be our first blockbuster event with Coastline MINI Garage.

Excited is an understatement!

We are so pumped to be producing yet another major event at Kawana sports precinct! Historically, our events at the Sunshine Coast Stadium and Kawana Sports Precinct have lay host to our largest crowds, our biggest screens, our best food-truck line-ups, most enjoyable bands, & have taken the cinema experience to a whole new level!

This Saturday (3rd February) we are lighting up that jumbo screen with “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”.

Winner of three competitive Academy Awards and a Special Achievement Award. This 1988 live-action/animation hybrid film was the first to win multiple Academy Awards since “Mary Poppins” in 1964.

To get you to the movie, we are opening the gates at 5pm with ‘Dosed’!!

This Sunshine Coast based reggae/rock band get their influences from Red Hot chilli peppers, Sticky Fingers and Sublime. Setting the mood with an uplifting dance vibe,  impassioned, original music and powerful stage presence… We strongly suggest you arrive early to catch their show!!

Couple this tremendous live music with a buffet of Food Trucks & Market Stall options. Including:

The Good Food Fella’s, Nimo’s Schnitzels, Calamari Canteen, Brew Captain, Wozza’s Ice Cream VAN, B-FAN Merchandise, 91.9 Sea FM Crew, Popcorn stand & more…

This goes way beyond your typical movie night experience!

With the option to upgrade to VIP / Front Row Seating & be greeted with a bag of freshly popped, organic popcorn (courtesy of our dear friends at The Source Bulk Foods, Caloundra). The evening keeps getting better!

We wrap-up the pre-screening festivities with a prize draw including over $500 worth of goods from Threads 4556, Fancy Stainless Steel water bottles from Source Bulk Foods Caloundra and gifts from our sponsors.

There’s nothing quite like our OPEN AIR MOVIE NIGHTS!!

Richmond Football Club + Novotel Twin Waters Resort + Open Air Movie Nights = ‘Nuff Said.

Open Air Movie Nights & Coastline MINI Garage are off to an amazing start to our 2018 Outdoor Cinema Season here on the Sunshine Coast! Kicking off the season with an outstanding private screening, on the lagoon at Novotel Twin Waters Resort.

For 2 years running, OAMN have been fortunate enough to start our “Movie Night Season” by entertaining the players, coaches, staff & crew of Richmond Football Club at the resort. Complete with comfy rugs, cushions, airbeds, canvas lie-lows, all-you-can-eat street food trucks and breathtaking views.

Honestly, we couldn’t think of a better way to kick of 2018!

As the players focus on their pre-season training, we have the privilege of joining them for a few hours of ‘RnR’.

Each year, the coach and staff of Richmond FC hand-select a movie title with an underlying message for the players to digest.

In early 2017 we screened “Chasing Great”: The story of Richie McCaw, one of the best rugby players of all time.

This year we screened “Senna”: A documentary on Brazilian Formula One racing driver Ayrton Senna.

On behalf of the Open Air Movie Night Crew – all the best for your 2018 season champions!

The sun is setting at the world famous Mooloolaba beach and you’re kicking back in style on a complimentary comfy canvas beach chair (or beanbag), munching on your FREE organic popcorn, and soaking up the atmosphere right before the Open Air Movie Night feature film begins.

Combine the fun experience of our pop-up outdoor cinema with the best in Sunshine Coast cuizine and retail therapy directly across the street… this was our Christmas Present to the locals and visitors of Mooloolaba Beach during the 2016 Christmas school holidays!

We teamed up with Mooloolaba Business & Tourism to entertain guests by providing them with an absolutely unique night out, where the first 75 guests to arrive received complimentary organic popcorn (c/o The Source Bulk foods Caloundra) popped fresh by our bright red novolty popcorn cart and boutique seating until the VIP section was full. Talk about rare occasions!

Now, we ALL know about the regular Open Air Cinema events that take place across the globe. Your local council or sports group probably organizes them for the public every Easter, Christmas or School Break. Well… this is different! This experience is more than your average movie night out… it’s definitely something the family will remember, a little bit of magic.

We loved transforming this space and putting some really unique elements into play. Besides the things you see like the trendy decorations, astro turf, festoon lighting, garden gnomes, red mushroom themed ornaments and rad seating, there’s a lot more that goes into making these events extra spesh! There’s a lot of passion, a lot of elbow greese, a lot of love, a lot of fun and it’s all worth it when we se the smiles on peoples faces in the crowd as we love to entertain.

A ‘Menulog’ & ‘Open Air Movie Nights’ Collaboration.

Season 1 of OAMN (Open Air Movie Nights) included some of our most bizzare yet splendid collaborative events to date!

We explore some of the Sunshine Coasts’ most outstanding locations! From rooftops, resort gardens, cafe’s, restaurants, breweries, beachfronts and other hidden nooks throughout Caloundra, Mooloolaba, Alexandra Headlands and Twin Waters, we create a little bit of magic. But our most unique and out-of-the-box event of them all had to be the season finale’ 2015/2016:

#MenulogLocal & Open Air Movie Nights “MEALS & MOVIES”!

Setup for 3-nights in the OLD COURT HOUSE, MAROOCHYDORE. This collaborative season finale’ saw a stretch screen mounted and projected onto from the old jail cells,  an inflatable big screen setup in the car park, refreshments, live music (by the exceptionally talented Mr. Paul B. Clement) and guests were able to order their meals (via the Menulog app) to be delivered directly to their seats.  These inclusions, along with all of the rugs, cushions, inflatable air beds and canvas lie-lows that one could possibly want was a recipe for pure movie night bliss! This was a truely unforgettable weekend on so many levels.

 Screening ‘Point Break 1’ & ‘The Neverending Story’, the party opened at 5:30pm with live music and meals, there were prize giveaways inbetween and the feature film to end the show. A formula that has become the signature of the OAMN festival-style night out.
