It’s the perfect time to be a dinosaur fan – or, to be exact, a fan of prehistoric creatures running amok on screens. The Marvelous of David Attenborough prehistoric planet hit the streaming queues, ready for some spectacular binge-watching. Jurassic World Dominion is in the movies, even if it’s forgettable. And King Street in Bowen Hills is hosting an evening of dino movies under the stars – beloved classics too, and all for free.
At King Street Movies in the Park — Dinosaur Adventures on Saturday, June 25, you’ll head to Alexandria Park, watch dinosaur movies, get super nostalgic, and hear lots of roars. On the bill: the adorable animation The land before time (at 5.30 p.m.), then the Olympics jurassic park (at 19 ‘o clock). Is there a better combination of dino-themed retro movies? We think not.
Admission is free, but pre-registration is required for each session. This is both a dog-friendly (on-leash) and family-friendly event, so expect a small four-legged company.
There will also be live music, a La Macelleria ice cream cart so you can pair your movies with dessert and free popcorn – with one serving per person while supplies last.
If you know you’ll be hungry for more than movie snacks, you can also pick up a $50 King St Eats Deluxe Picnic Hamper for two, complete with picnic basket and picnic blanket to use and take home. Food-wise, it includes bites of your choice from El Camino Cantina, Xin Chao, Super Combo, Fat Dumpling, Welcome to Bowen Hills with Southern Smoke & Co, Beerhaus, Sushi & Nori, and Six Acres Restaurant.
