Ben and Jerry's Openair Cinema Brisbane

Oceanics and Gung Ho to play Sundae Sessions at Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinemas, Brisbane

The perfect way to enjoy an Aussie summer day


MEDIA RELEASE, 12 November 2012: Ben & Jerry’s has joined forces with OzHarvest to bring some of Australia’s favourite bands centre stage to raise funds and awareness for charity, and create the best Sundae Sessions ever at the annual Brisbane Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinema.


This Sundae Session kicks off in Brisbane with Oceanics and Gung Ho rocking the Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinema stage. All ticket proceeds from Sundae Sessions go to the good people at OzHarvest, a not for profit organisation that rescues excess food and delivers it to people in need.


Regular Sundae Sessions will continue every Sunday throughout the sunny season until the 25th  November. The event sets sail every week at the Cultural Forecourt, South Bank, with tub-thumping moo-sic from local bands, which fans can enjoy whilst tucking into some dairylicious Ben & Jerry’s. It’s the ultimate way to get into the spirit of summer and come together with friends to chill out under the sun until the stars come out and movie magic begins.


Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinemas is a quintessential summer event that features a great mix of classic and recent blockbuster movies playing on a huge outdoor screen from dusk. Movies include The Sapphires, Ruby Sparks, Stand By Me and more! Music by day, movies by night, cinemagoers and music lovers alike can relax with gourmet-style food and tasty beverages from the licensed bar, and watch the sunset sounds of acoustic sets from talented musicians.


Key dates are outlined below, so get moo-ving and jot those delicious dates down in your dairy!
